NOVEC Energy Production / Halifax County Biomass

NOVEC Energy Production / Halifax County Biomass Plant has recently purchased eLogger for the start-up of their biomass plant operations.

The plant relies on wood waste (also called “slash”) for fuel. Slash is typically left on forest floors or burned on logging sites. Forestry consultants have determined that there is an abundance of slash within a 75-mile radius of the Halifax County facility. One of the significant attributes of this facility is that it is “carbon neutral.” In other words, it doesn’t add any more carbon dioxide to the environment beyond what is released through natural decomposition of slash.

The plant is being cooled with ‘grey’ water from a nearby waste water treatment facility in a closed loop. Therefore, the plant doesn’t require the use of thousands of gallons of clean water from the local water authority. The plant site is not visible from adjoining roadways because it is tucked inside 104 acres of woods.

NOVEC, headquartered in Manassas, Va., is a not-for-profit, electric utility corporation that supplies and distributes electricity and energy-related services to more than 150,000 customers in Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, Prince William, Stafford, and Clarke counties, the Town of Clifton, and the City of Manassas Park. It is one of the largest electric companies of its kind in the nation.
