National Gypsum Uses Cogeneration Unit at Manufacturing Plant
National Gypsum Company opened a combined heat and power – CHP or cogeneration – project at its Burlington, NJ, facility. The project produces 3.4 MW of clean electricity and delivers more than 30 MMBtu of thermal energy each hour of operation, resulting in an overall efficiency of greater than 90 percent.
National Gypsum installed Recycled Energy Development’s cogeneration system.
The cogeneration system provides power and thermal energy to NGC’s wallboard production facility by capturing the excess heat that is a natural byproduct of the gas turbine’s combustion and utilizing it within the manufacturer’s board dryer in order to dry wallboard.
The project benefitted from a $1.3-million competitive grant administered by New Jersey’s Economic Development Authority and Board of Public Utilities.
