Mobile Plant Produces Liquid Fuel From Waste Wood

Twelve research groups from seven countries have developed a sustainable method for producing biofuel from wood waste. The process takes place in a mobile unit that has the potential to decentralize fuel production. Wood waste and tree bark are ideal raw materials as they don’t need to be specially cultivated and don’t compete with food […]

Arizona Utility Looking At Biomass Power Generation

After boosting its solar power generation and adding wind-energy projects in recent years, Tucson Electric Power Co. is looking at biomass generation from burning wood or other organic matter. TEP said Friday that it is seeking information about forest biomass generation systems that could generate power for customers while improving the health of Arizona forests. […]

Forestry, Paper Industries Prevail On Biomass In Omnibus Draft

Emissions from forest biomass would continue to be treated as carbon-neutral and the EPA would be barred from regulating lead in bullets and fishing tackle under the draft omnibus spending bill, congressional aides told Bloomberg Environment. Both the ammunition and forest biomass regulatory provisions would be retained from previous spending measures. The biomass language would […]

Can Co-Firing Biomass With Coal Help Meet International Climate Goals?

While he’s not personally present, President Trump is getting the cold shoulder at the climate meeting in Bonn, Germany because of his insistence on the wider use of coal-fired electricity. But one such idea that is getting floated there is the co-firing of biomass with coal to potentially increase efficiencies and to reduce CO2 emissions. […]

Study: Biomass Harvesting Techniques With Few Long-Term Impacts

A set of newly published studies evaluated nearly forty years of data on the impacts of biomass utilization on soil, tree, and plant recovery and found minimal impact using certain forest harvesting techniques. The experiments, initiated in 1974, were conducted by scientists from the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station on the Coram Experimental […]

Biomass Project Makes Debut At Yukon Conference

A conference opening in Whitehorse Tuesday will show off the territory’s newest biomass heating project. Biomass energy uses organic matter to heat buildings and produce power. This new biomass project uses waste wood to generate heat at a Whitehorse recycling center. “People had to drive brush and add it to the dump and they have […]

Modular Biobattery Plant Turns A Wide Range Of Biomass Into Energy

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Energy and Safety Technology have developed a “biobattery” in the form of a highly efficient biogas plant that can turn raw materials like straw, scrap wood and sludge into a variety of useful energy sources including electricity, purified gas and engine oil. The new plant design, currently being […]
