Construction of a biomass pellet plant
Eskom is planning to undertake a project in collaboration with the SA Forestry Company Limited (Safcol) and the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) to build the company’s first biomass plant.
After making modifications to IDC’s pellets facility in Sabie to create a torrefied pellet plant, Eskom will use wood from Safcol’s forests as feedstock. The resulting pellets will then be delivered to Arnot Power Station, where they’ll burn with coal to generate electricity.
This project is now open to access in full for 7 days. For the contact details of all the key individuals involved, click here.
