Continental Carbon Company (CCC) pursued a cogeneration project in order to reduce emissions and meet EPA regulations.  This project was a unique cogeneration application.  CCC had high-temperature waste gas with excess emissions from their carbon-producing process.  These emissions were required to be scrubbed to meet EPA regulations.  The process to do this was to put the waste gas through a boiler.  The boiler produced steam while allowing the emissions to be scrubbed.  The boiler produced 150,000 lbs/hour of 800 lb steam.  The steam fed two steam turbines.  The turbines produced 29MW of power which was all consumed on site.

This was a design-build project, with Z&F Construction as the prime contractor and Z&F Consulting as the lead design firm.  Z&F Consulting advanced a design development package from CCC to provide final construction documents.
