Biostoom Oostende NV is an operational biomass power station in Oostende, Belgium.
The plant has been operational since September 2009 and has a strong track record of high availability and generation. The plant can process up to 160 kilotonnes of household waste per annum and has a capacity of 18 MW.
Electricity is produced from residual waste, originating from pre-treated industrial waste or household waste. This fuel is processed externally (purified, ground and dried) before being incinerated at Biostoom. Combustion produces steam, along with the heat released, and this drives a turbine that generates electricity, which is then sold into the high-voltage grid.
