Martynas Mickus
Darius Biekša


The article investigates the possibilities of biomass and municipal waste utilization in Šiauliai region by introducing a combined heat and power production plant. The paper presents an overview of biomass and municipal waste composition and identifies its heat value and generation quantities. Investigation includes modelling CHP plant operation based on real data that includes detailed information on actual heat load in Šiauliai, the current amount and prognosis of biomass production and waste generation in the area. Modelling suitable power plant size is performed. Economic evaluation has shown that the current economical indicators are poor. Energy generation from waste still requires additional support in order to be competitive.
