Bulleh Shah Packaging – Pakistan Biomass-Fired Power Plant

Under a licensing agreement, B&W Vølund has supplied technology to a biomass fired energy plant at the Bulleh Shah Packaging Limited paper factory. The fuel consists of residues from local wheat straw, cotton stalks, corn, rice and river grass. The plant’s steam data will be 150 t/h at 530 degrees and 98 bara: enough to secure stability in the supply of steam and power to the factory. A reliable supply of energy is rare in Pakistan. It can be both expensive and challenging for the factory when p
