B.L. England Generating Station

The B.L. England Generating Station, also called Beesley's Point Generating Station, is a power plant in Upper Township, Cape May County, New Jersey, United States, on the Great Egg Harbor River. The facility provides approximately 450 megawatts of generating capacity from three generating units. Two units burn coal (and up to 7 percent used tires) and the third unit burns bunker C oil. Its large smokestack, altered to resemble a lighthouse, contains a sulfur dioxide scrubber which removes the SO2 from the flue gas and converts it into gypsum, which can be sold. The scrubber allows the two coal units to use less expensive high sulfur coal from West Virginia.

Avedøre Power Station

The Avedøre Power Station is a combined heat and power station, located in Avedøre, Denmark, just south of Copenhagen, and is owned by Ørsted A/S. Avedøre Power Plant is a high-technology facility and one of the world's most efficient of its kind, being able to utilize as much as 94% of the energy in the fuel and convert 49% of the fuel energy into electricity. Apart from using coal, petroleum (oil) and natural gas, the plant runs on a wide variety of biomass fuels such as straw and wood pellets. The plant consists of two units with a total capacity of 793 MW of electricity and 918 MW of heat. The combination of producing electricity and heat for district heating at the same time is widely used in Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia, due to the need of domestic heating together with the Danish energy companies putting a big effort into optimising the energy plants.
