The Neijiang Gaoba power station was commissioned and began operation in 1996 and was a result of a merger between the Neijiang Power Repair Plant and the Baima Power Plant, which are all secondary plants under the Neijiang General Power Plant.[2][1] Although currently only consisting of a 100MW unit, the original planned capacity was 2x100MW units.[1] The Neijiang Gaoba power plant was China's first 100MW circulating fluidized bed boiler power station, and was also a key construction project for China's Eighth Five-Year Plan.[3] The facility is equipped with desulfurization technology, which was installed prior to 2004.[4] A community of retired employees still lives near the plant.[2]

Biomass Conversion

In 2020, the Neijiang Gaoba plant ran a trial operation where it used biomass instead of coal as its primary fuel source. The trial operation was successful, with no carbon emissions emitted from the biomass burning, and the plant reportedly aims to continue moving towards using biomass as a main fuel. An extension of this project would save 510,000 tons of domestic waste every year, and the annual power generation could reach 117 million kWh. It would also meet the daily electricity consumption of 260,000 residents in Neijiang City and save 102,200 tons of standard coal per year.[5]
