Document Description
Conditional Use Permit (CUP) Application No. P18-03189 proposes to amend the prior CUP No. 15-030 by adding a Biomass Cogeneration Plant (BCP), and a wood pellet mill to the existing West Coast Waste Material Recovery Facility (MRF) Currently the MRF accepts 1,500 TPD of clean (pre-sorted) and green organic materials, wood waste, and wood chipping suitable for recycled use by others. Some of this material cannot be recycled and must be disposed at a local landfill. The Project will divert a maximum of 200 TPD of this waste organic and wood material from disposal at a local landfill and will instead be utilized as feedstock in the new BCP. This BCP will generate renewable electricity via a fully enclosed gasification/combustion process to create steam to run a turbine generator. The turbine will generate approximately five (5) MW, of which 1.2 to 2.0 megawatts (MW) will be used to offset grid power used by the new process and to power new electric grinders. The remaining 3 MW will be sold to PG&E through an interconnection at the north edge of the site on South Golden State Frontage Road.
