Bioenergy

 

As the world population swells to more than seven billion and counting, the need for sustainable waste disposal and clean energy generation is growing with it. Lockheed Martin’s bioenergy power generation systems have the potential to solve both challenges.

 

Projects

 

  Herten, Germany
This facility will generate 5 megawatts of energy, or enough to power about 5,000 homes and businesses. To create its power, the plant will process 50,000 tons of raw waste per year, significantly reducing the need for landfill use.

Owego, New York
We’re building a 250 kilowatt advanced gasification plant at our Owego, New York facility. The plant will process approximately 3,650 tons of feedstock into electricity for the facility per year. Our Owego system is the first demonstration of our waste-to-energy technology and will pave the way for global commercial use. + Learn More
 
 
 
       
       
       

Lockheed Martin and Concord Blue have signed an agreement to jointly develop advanced waste conversion systems to address waste disposal, energy security and climate control issues through clean energy production. Lockheed Martin provides its engineering, program management, procurement, manufacturing and integration experience to apply Concord Blue’s patented technology globally in the expanding waste-to-energy arena.

  • Waste Conversion and Biomass Energy

    Lockheed Martin’s Owego, N.Y. plant hosts a fully automated fuel supply and ash removal system.
  • Waste Conversion and Biomass Energy

    Using discarded wood chips and bark supplied by local lumber mills, the Lockheed Martin Owego, N.Y. biomass facility supplies steam heat to the 1.8 million square foot site, reducing the plant’s carbon footprint by 9,000 metric tons and saving approximately $1 million in fuel costs annually.
  • Waste Conversion and Biomass Energy

    The boilers’ computer-controlled gasification technology generates high efficiency and low emissions.
