Renewable Fuels

C-B Sustainability logo

Renewable fuels are playing an increasingly important role worldwide. Growing pressure to lower emissions and replace fossil fuels is leading companies to explore a range of biofuels such as ethanol, biodiesel and biogas. Unlike fossil fuels, which are limited in supply, biofuels are produced from renewable feedstocks and can be sustained indefinitely.


Green hydrogen also can replace fossil fuels in electricity and industrial processes. In fact, green hydrogen is touted as the backbone of a sustainable CO2-free energy sector. But to realize its full potential, a commitment to building the infrastructure is needed, particularly in the U.S.


Regardless of the type of renewable fuel you want to burn, we have developed innovative technologies to help you transition your boiler from fossil fuels. Today, we have customers burning ethanol, biodiesel, biogas and hydrogen fuel, among others.


If the boiler pressure vessel is okay, replacing the burner is all that is needed to convert a system from a fossil fuel to a renewable one. We also offer dual fuel burners, popular with customers that produce a renewable fuel as a byproduct, but the quantity only partially supplies the load for the plant.
