Since the last update, work on the start-up sequence and drier performance is essentially complete, with a few remaining tasks involving tuning the automatic control of the fuel drying process using on-line moisture analyzers..In the picture at right, operator Brett Massey and IT/control system technician Joe Watters inspect the dry pulverized fuel which has been successfully dried and processed. This fuel is normally stored in the dry fuel storage bin from where it is fed into the advanced combustor.
Emissions optimization has begun. This is the last major task which needs to be completed before starting the Aera-specified performance test. Emissions optimization involves identifying the "best" settings for key process parameters delivering the ultra-low emissions which can be automatically and reliably controlled.
Greensteam process experts analyze process performance using both process data and visible observation of the flame. In the picture at right, engineering manager Ted Conway shoots a video of the flame which is later reviewed by the team as an indicator of combustion process "health" and emissions performance.
In the picture at left, Brett Massey and Joe Watters change key process parameters which govern low emissions and monitor overall process performance during emissions optimization. Consistent with Greensteam's advanced process operational philosophy, Brett and Joe control and monitor the process in the field where they are close to the process equipment (that's the combustor in the background) using portable operator stations which allow them to see all current and historic plant information.

|Demonstration plant activities are currently focused on preparing for the upcoming Aera-specified performance test. Specifically, the operations team is working on optimizing the start-up sequence (the test specification requires a number of start-ups and shutdowns), optimizing dryer performance to insure the fuel is dried to target moisture content using waste heat, and optimizing process conditions in the advanced energy conversion unit to deliver ultra-low emissions.|
In the picture to the right, Greensteam lead operator Garrett Estes uses a portable operations workstation to monitor process conditions during optimization testing. Greensteam is a precisely controlled process, and the operators use the workstations to safely and efficiently run the plant.
To the left is a supply of typical agricultural biomass on the receiving pad prior to sizing and drying in the Greensteam system. The vapor cloud in the background is from Greensteam generated steam diverted to a blow down tank, the normal practice during unit testing.
