SMBSC has the necessary boilers to provide 100 percent of the steam required to run the various heating and evaporative processes necessary.
We have the flexibility of varying our primary fuel supplies. We can use coal, natural gas, or fuel oil (No. 6). We also have the capability
of producing roughly ½ of our electrical needs by utilizing back pressure turbine generators, a form of co-generation. High pressure steam
from the boilers is fed to the turbines and the backpressure exhaust steam from the turbines is piped to the factory for its heating requirements.
Supplemental outside power is purchased as required from local utilities.
