New US biomass boiler will replace four conventional boilers

HARTSVILLE_ Construction crews have been working tirelessly over the summer on Sonoco's new biomass boiler that will replace four fossil-fueled boilers.
The new boiler is expected to be complete December 2013 and will provide approximately $14 million in savings each year. Over the summer, the project has completed 245 safe work days. The foundation for the boiler stoker has been poured and completed, along with caps, grade beams and columns. Also completed is the retention pond. All but five of the tie-ins were completed during July. The remaining tie-ins will be completed in February.
During the next two months, equipment for the boiler will be shipped in and stored, steel erection will continue, and two 30" diameter concrete pipes will be installed underground from the construction site to the retention pond.

This blog piece is going to be fairly long, quite involved in its detail, but hopefully very enjoyable if you despise and detest climate change denial, as I do. But first, an explanation of the circumstances.

The other day, on Twitter, I indulged in a bit of regular fun-poking at James Delingpole, as I often do because, quite simply, the man just invites it. For those not in the know, Delingpole is a pretty nasty character really. He writes regular blog pieces and op-eds for Breitbart and The Spectator, usually on climate change, but also on other subjects as well. He is usually, and seemingly, unashamedly vicious, as will become apparent in my coverage of him and his behaviour in this piece. Given his behaviour, I am not afraid, occasionally to indulge in a bit of 'ad-hominem' warfare myself, ind…

Coca Cola When it comes to beverage manufacturers, Coca Cola is among the biggest around the world. They have started taking on a more responsible environmental commitment by making water preservation, sustainable packaging, and energy and climate protection among their goals.…
