Lockheed Martin offers solutions for waste conversion and biomass applications that utilize non-food feedstock and waste. As a global security company, Lockheed Martin sees energy as a national security issue. With more than 7 billion people on the planet, sustainable waste disposal and a need for energy that is both secure and clean are vital to quality of life, and Lockheed Martin provides the ability to successfully engineer, procure and build industrial scale waste-to-energy and biomass plants.

Lockheed Martin’s strength is combining technology, systems, services and industry teams to create original solutions. To make this vision a reality, we are pursuing strategic relationships with technology leaders in both the commercial and academic spaces.

  • Lockheed Martin and Concord Blue announced Nov. 19, 2014 that they signed a contract to build a power generation facility in Herten, Germany. This five-megawatt bioenergy project is the first commercial endeavor captured under the Lockheed Martin and Concord Blue teaming agreement.
  • In October 2013, Lockheed Martin and Concord Blue executed a teaming agreement where we will apply our demonstrated ability to scale-up projects, support development and facilitate access to a much broader, global market, allowing us to insert Concord Blue’s distinguishable technology into the domestic and global marketplace.
  • Working with Cape Breton Explorations Ltd., Lockheed Martin is providing engineering and construction services for a six-megawatt biomass combined heat and power generating plant at Harbourside Industrial Park in Sydney, Nova Scotia, awarded under the Nova Scotia Community Feed-in Tariff (COMFIT) program. The future facility is expected to produce 50,000-megawatt hours of electrical power annually to be distributed locally – enough power to meet approximately 20% of Sydney’s requirements.
  • The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program awarded Lockheed Martin a contract to investigate and test three tar reformation technologies for direct use in a generator engine. The goal is to effectively capture the tar and reform it to burn cleanly in internal combustion generator engines without damage to the engine. This effort enables future development of deployable waste-to-energy systems that meet Department of Defense needs for efficiency, footprint and reliability.
  • Our Owego, NY, plant hosts a fully automated fuel supply and ash removal system. This system uses wood chips from a local saw mill to fuel two wood-fired boilers, which are used to generate steam to provide heat to the 1.8 million square foot site, reducing the plant’s carbon footprint by 9,000 metric tons and saving approximately $1 million in fuel costs annually. During the cooling season, steam is provided to absorption chillers to produce chilled water to meet the plant’s space cooling needs.
