University of Iowa officials are testing a new renewable energy source they hope could make the campus more green, but environmental advocates on campus say the move might not be enough.
The university's Oakdale Campus — located northwest of Iowa City — will soon start using a $7.3 million biomass boiler that will replace a gas-powered boiler. The new boiler burns woodchips.

Because the project was a retrofit, Hurst had to custom design the biomass boiler solution to fit into an existing structure.

The Savannah River National Lab, Aiken, S.C., recently replaced a 1950's era coal-burning steam generating plant with a state-of-the-art facility that will burn biomass, mostly wood from the local logging industry. The original plant was too large, so Savannah managers often had to vent much of the steam, which reduced its efficiency. The new plant has two state-of-the-art HURST 30,000 lb/ hr steam boilers, one burning biomass, and the other fuel oil. The fuel-oil boiler is a standby for maintenance periods and peak demands. The plant cost $10 million to build, but should save $1.5 million annually in reduced operating and maintenance costs, as well as less energy consumption. It also meets new Clean Air and Water Act standards.
