Urban wood residues from tree trimmings, construction, and demolition make a small contribution to biomass energy today. These resources tend to be used where tipping fees are high.


Benefitsfrom the Bioenergy Producers Association

In addition to furthering landfill diversion, air quality, energy, and agricultural goals, conversion technologies (CTs) will advance the following:

  • Urban Revitalization - Clean CT industries can serve as anchor facilities for urban eco-industrial parks.
  • Environmental Justice - Through decentralization of waste treatment and diversion from landfills, more sections of large cities can share in the responsibilities and opportunities of recycling, waste reduction, and employment opportunities.
