Boiler plant operators need to be flexible in their fuel choices if they want to remain successful in today’s world of fluctuating fuel and carbon emission prices, electricity demand and environmental standards. 

In the future, carbon emissions will have to decrease and owners of new boiler plants are well advised to possibly switch to lower carbon emission fuels. Plants that can operate successfully on coal can simultaneously use local or seasonal biomass materials without the need for a boiler conversion.

ERK has a long history in multi-fuel boilers, with the first ones dating back to the 1950s. Today, we have more than one thousand multi-fuel boilers and heaters for mixtures of fossil fuels as well as fossil and renewable fuels.
