Silver Bay Eco-Industrial Business Park Mission Statement To ...

Silver Bay Eco-Industrial Business Park Mission Statement To network businesses to work with each other and the Silver Bay Community in order to create and diversify living wage employment, by improving resource productivity, eliminating pollution and expanding markets through renewable sustainable energy development. How it Began October 2008 interdisciplinary project team of stakeholders discussed how to transform Silver Bay Business Park into and eco-park. In 2008 the City applied for an MPCA Environmental Assistance Grant and awarded $40,000 in June 2009. Project assessed feasibility of using wind, biomass and biodiesel to generate renewable heat and power, and to apply industrial ecology methods to achieve "zero waste

- zero emissions. Silver Bay Eco-Industrial Business Park Project Team

Competitive Advantage

Businesses will be attracted to locate within the park, to benefit from predictable renewable sustainable energy costs. The need for fossil fuel consumption will be eliminated and ultimately result in reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, carbon footprint, and waste. Eco-Park as a Revenue Source Renewable and Sustainable Energy Facilities Silver Bay EDA would own 51 percent Business, land owners and stakeholders 49 percent

Silver Bay Eco-Park Renewable Energy, LLC Power purchase agreement with local utility Revenue source to maintain the Eco-Park or other civic improvements Engineered green infrastructure for clean production. Silver Bay Eco-Park Renewable Energy System A new, publicly owned utility service for the generation, production and distribution of renewable, sustainable combined heat and power system

for the citizens and businesses of Silver Bay. Integrated Renewable and Sustainable Energy Generation Three Forms of Energy Generation Biomass Binary Combined Heat and Power Wind and Solar Biodiesel though Algal Growth Combined Heat and Power and Wood Pellet Production Synergy

Local industries and feedstocks from logging operations Sustainable Job Creation Local Economic and Environmental Benefits Co-located Pellet Production would use 1.6MW of the 2.5MW Conventional Condensing Power Condensing Power is generating electricity without using the waste heat. Fuel conversion efficiency for fossil fuel condensing power (utilities) is about 37%.

FCE for fossil fuels condensing power is 10,000 Btus/kW or more Biomass condensing power takes about 16,000 Btus/kW and is only about 23% efficient. Coal based condensing power results in over 1 ton of CO2 per MWh. Environmental and Economic Benefits Renewable-based CHP system will result displace approximately 150,000 tons per year CO2 emissions

Significant increase in fuel efficiency from 37percent - in utility sized coal fired condensing power plants to 75 percent Complete system emissions at maximum potential to emit will be less than 235 tpy Utilization of 100,000 tpy of wood pellets, displacing a 50/50 mix of propane and fuel oil, yields a total of 127,500 tpy of CO2 displaced

Approximately forty (40) construction jobs, fifteen (15) permanent pellet plant operating and 6 logging jobs could be created Large Wind Off-Site Finland Air Base Highest elevation in MN Very good use of the existing facility and the surrounding land

Infrastructure is already in place Small Wind On-Site Silver Bay Eco-Park Makes beneficial use of coastal wind source which is readily available. Can be harvested using low elevation turbines (less than 35 feet high) Environmentally and aesthetically friendly

Shared Facilities Summary Demonstrates how to reinvent industrial base to position for the future. Applied a can-do approach, involving many partners. Adopting environmental innovation can create local value and gain long-term competitive advantages.

A big step toward energy and food security. A model for others in the region and state. A win-win-win for the environment, economy and community.
