My plant vents an average of 90,000 lb/hr of 50# steam to maintain power production. That amounts to almost 800 million pounds a year so 1 billion is not that unheard of. In our case our fuel is cheap and we can produce electrical power cheaper than buying by venting. Unfortunately the steam still has some btu value but less than zero dollar value so there is not much we can do to save it in a way that has an ROI.
