Description

A reprint of an article by George E. Baker published POWER magazine in December of 1969. In 1967, the Southern California Edison Company (SCE) partnered with the Garden State Paper Company (GSP) to install and operate an on-site gas-turbine generator and heat recovery system to supply all the energy needs of a patented de-inking process to produce clean newsprint from used newspapers. This unique co-generation system provided the operating flexibility, operating economics, site compatibility, and reliability to make it the ideal solution for both partners. SCE supplied both electricity and heat energy while GSP enjoyed the advantage of low cost, reliable energy right at the process plant. Westinghouse Electric supplied the W-191 pre-packaged gas turbine that was electrically tied to the SCE grid. Voigt supplied the fired heat recovery boiler with a standby forced draft fan for backup duty. The plant went commercial in January of 1967.
