Understanding the CFB Process

AP Reputation Management Team | August 13, 2018

Have you ever wondered how AboitizPower’s Therma South power plant in Davao City works? Well, wonder no more.

The power plant utilizes circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology to ensure that it meets government standards on health, safety, and protection of the environment while operating in an efficient and cost-effective manner. CFB plants operate at a relatively much lower temperature compared to traditional thermal plants, hence, producing significantly lower emissions.

Already a local landmark, Therma South’s iconic coal dome is the first of its kind in the Philippines. Occupying an area of more than one hectare, this modern coal storage facility ensures the security of the fuel, while at the same time guaranteeing the safety and welfare of the community and environment.

AboitizPower pioneers these kinds of technologies to assure that we provide reliable and ample power supply at reasonable and competitive prices while integrating social development and environmental stewardship into our business operations.
