According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), biomass recently surpassed hydropower as the largest domestic source of renewable energy, and biomass consumption in electric utilities is expected to double every 10 years through 2030, with forest land and agricultural land being the two largest potential biomass sources.
Biopower uses biomass energy systems to generate electricity through methods such as dedicated direct-fired biomass operations, co-firing substitutes, gasification systems, pyrolysis, and anaerobic digestion.
Today, biomass resources generally fall into three categories:
- Urban Waste
Due to its large agricultural and forestry sectors, Kentucky has an abundance of biomass energy resources within a wide variety of land, climate and soil conditions. Kentucky biomass is already producing fuel, electricity, and ethanol and biodiesel biofuels while creating jobs from clean, sustainable sources of energy.
Demir Energy is proud to be a member of America’s newest energy resource.
