    Energy is an indispensable resource that is required to run the economy and sustain the well-being of people. Every day new discoveries are made to improve efficiency of the methods of power generation and transmission. After all, energy conservation must be our social responsibility.

    Social responsibilities for exploring, harnessing, adopting the given energy sources to obtain effective means to consume those are no less important. The rapidly developing economies of Third World countries like India, China need to generate increasing amounts of energy as they grow. Energy shortages with rising cost confront every nation, especially those aspiring for industrial development. A time has come when no resource of this planet, including energy, should be used wastefully. To achieve this ideal, the society as a whole would require collective efforts of all groups, especially between the organizations harnessing energy and the consumers of energy. And both must understand the underlying principles of energy generation and energy consumption.

    Every day new discoveries are made to improve efficiency of the methods of power generation and transmission. Some of the discoveries would fail to attract the users while some may be rejected or replaced by new claims. Such a circumstance would demand repeated explorations of energy opportunities and the way social responses can facilitate t...

    Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center officially fired up a new boiler Wednesday that burns wood chips and is projected to save the health system $500,000 a year.

    The 800-horsepower boiler also represents nearly 40 percent of Gundersen’s goal of 100 percent energy independence by next year, officials said at a ceremony unveiling the $6.5 million project on its La Crosse campus.

    Gundersen CEO Jeff Thompson said the project fits a mission beyond the goal of controlling health care costs.

    “Gundersen believes our responsibility is to the breadth of the population, not just within the walls of our hospitals or clinics,” Thompson said. “It means the health and well-being of the whole community … keeping the people and the economy healthy.”

    The boiler creates steam for use throughout the hospital for heat and other needs in areas such as sterilizing equipment, providing humidification and running the laundry and the kitchen, as well powering as a turbine to generate electricity for the hospital.

    The boiler — called biomass because it uses natural, renewable resources — supplants three boilers that dated to 1971 and needed to be replaced, said Jeff Rich, executive director of GL Envision, the health system’s energy subsidiary.

    “When we looked at all of our options, installing a biomass boiler was the right choice,” Rich said. “Not only will the biomass boiler save the organization an estimated $500,000 a year,...

    Process Barron and Jansen will co-host the first Jansen boiler workshop of the year at the in Boston, Mass., May 9–10, 2013. An annual event for representatives from the pulp and paper, independent power, utility, and energy-from-waste industries, the Jansen seminar seeks to educate attendees about new technologies capable of improving biomass boiler burning capacity, efficiency, emissions, and overall performance. These working sessions are free for all participants.

    Representatives from ProcessBarron will conduct three technical sessions at the event. One will give an overview of material handling and fuel feed equipment, another will talk about design and performance considerations for multiclone dust collectors. In addition, president Ken Nolen will discuss fan design, efficiency, and horsepower requirements.

    ProcessBarron’s biomass division specializes in retrofitting draft systems and general techniques for reducing emissions and optimizing performance, working in ways that minimize downtime and loss of productivity.
