Project Guide


Project Guide

When developing a project there are several things that need to be assessed to make the project work While CSS Renewables can construct the plant there are a number of things required for a project to successfully get off the ground. To assist with this, CSS Renewables has developed this information guide so that developers are able to put together all the elements of a successful project.

Feedstock

One of the most important steps in developing and operating a combustion plant is a thorough understanding of the physical and chemical properties of the feed material.
The properties of RDF, SRF and biomass feedstocks can vary significantly, meaning it is highly beneficial to clearly define the particular material for your application. Our combustion technology is highly flexible and able to process a wide variety of feedstock material.

Site

Clearly, in order to develop an CSS Renewables project you need to have somewhere to put it. When selecting a site there are a few key requirements to keep into account:

Permitting

One of the great challenges in many locations to developing projects is the need for local planning and environmental permits. While the plant itself is quite benign there may be substantial work to prove this to government bodies before the plant is allowed to progress.

Environmental analysis may need to be carried out taking into account:

  • Expected Air Emissions
  • Emissions Monitoring
  • Expected Noise Levels
  • Waste Water treatment and disposal
  • Water Consumption
  • Potential for dust emissions
  • Odour

 

Additionally, there may be processes required before the plant is able to be connected to a centralised grid which can involve a level of design.

These constraints and processes are very much driven by the local jurisdiction. CSS Renewables is happy to provide generic information on these considerations. For more involved processes and depending on the data required then we can be employed to give the technical components required for these areas of analysis. Typically, this should be done in conjunction with a local consultant to the project who is familiar with the particulars of the permitting.
