Background

Yuen Foong Yu Paper Manufacturing Co., Ltd (YFY) installed a circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generator at its Chiutang Mill in Kaoshiung, Taiwan. The 50 MW unit was designed to burn bituminous coal as well as tires and sludge. The chief executive officer of Foster Wheeler Power Group Asia stated "The ability to burn alternative fuels that would otherwise go to landfills was paramount in their decision." Commercial operation began in 2011.[1]
