Fuel-based electricity and heat generation (SEBRA)

The SEBRA program develops efficient and environmentally friendly power and heating facilities, which includes studies of lye and biofuel boilers in the forestry industry. The goal is to contribute better knowledge to the long-term development of efficient and environmentally friendly energy solutions.

The program contributes to developing flexible fuel-based facilities that can be adapted to future needs and requirements. The main focus is the production of electricity and heat, but also the combined production of cooling, fuel, paper pulp and other products.

Research and development in the production of fuel-based electricity and heat generation has been on going since 1968, previously in Värmeforsk’s research. Over the years, the focus of research has developed and now consists of four areas:

  • Plant and combustion technology
  • Materials and chemical engineering
  • Process management
  • System technology

SEBRA is co-financed by the Energy industry via Energiforsk in collaboration with the Swedish Energy Agency. The first phase took place between 2013 and 2015 with a framework budget of SEK 60 million, of which the Swedish state accounts for 40 percent. A recent stage of the project ran up to 2019.
