I'm working with an article concerning windpower and wind mill parks. Finland has plans to have about 700 windmills installed along the coast line before 2020. Our windmills and components manufacturers are employing three to four thousand people. The industry makes about one billion (milliard) euros in turnover. Denmark is a wind-mills-superpower. They have a lot of wind mills and the plan is to produce i big part of their electricity with in windpower parks. They do also have a prospering wind mills industry with a turnover that is ten times larger than Finns are achieving.

Here is a link from Sweden.

Erik Sandström writes, "AB PiteEnergi köper in sig mot en option av 20 % av aktierna i Skellefteåbaserade Meva Innovation AB. Bolaget har utvecklat en teknik för att producera Biosyntesgas genom förgasning av biobränsle i en cyklon under hög temperatur. Meva Innovation AB arbetar med utveckling och marknadsföring av VIPP (Vortex Intensive Power Process). Det är en teknisk lösning för att utvinna renad biosyntesgas ur biobränslen."

I try to re-start the discussion about bioeconomy and possibilities related to agriculture.

- biofuel from potato production processes
- how to organize
- logistics
- available technology
- small scale and local

Star Tribune about Biofuel Energy Corp.:

Biofuel Energy Corp., an ethanol producer with a distillery in Fairmont, Minn., said it has $46 million in combined corn, ethanol and natural-gas hedge and mark-to-market losses and may restructure. Biofuel's shares plunged 63 percent.

The ethanol producer lacks the liquidity to satisfy all of the losses, Denver-based Biofuel said. Cargill Inc. holds the contracts and exercised its right to liquidate some of the agreements, the company said.

Biofuel's distilleries in Fairmont and in Wood River, Neb., have combined capacity of 230 million gallons annually. The company began production in June.

"It doesn't look very good; they could be headed for bankruptcy," said Ron Oster, an analyst at Broadpoint Capital Inc. in New York.

Biofuel shares plunged $1.59 to 93 cents. At Biofuel's initial public offering on June 7, the company sold 5.25 million shares at $10.50 each.

Pentti Malinen, do you remember when Kuhmo invested in the 20 MW fluidized bed 20 MW bioenergy CHP plant with combined heat and power (electricity) production? At that time the investment wasn't very good. Things have changed with higher cost of barrel of oil. It was one of the first "small" CHP plants delivered by Ahlstrom at that time. Small scale distributed CHP is probably now a much better idea than 20 years ago.

Kiuruvesi Wartsila 8,1 MW CHP, 0,9 MWel, 3Meur/electric MW
Comment by Helge V. Keitel on August 7, 2008 at 8:17pm
It's a 20 MW fluidicitezed plant with CHP 4,0 MWe (electricity) and a price of 2,5 Meuro/electricity MW. Good to get these figures.

Ravishankar, nice to see you as a member of this group. I think Olli will come in soon and write about CHP plants 1-10 MW and electrical power generation.
