In Canada, some community members are opposing a planned wood gasification to CHP project for co-location at Procter & Gamble’s facility in West Thurrock, concerned that some of the 100,000 metric tons of wood to be used as feedstock will be chemically treated wood. Opponents Biofuel Watch claim Nexterra’s technology for the facility is unproven.

In California, Phoenix Energy’s joint venture, North Fork Community Power, was awarded a $4.9 million grant at the California Energy Commission Business Meeting. The award will be used to construct one of the first forest-sourced biomass gasification plants, as well as research into the emerging field of forest biomass utilization. The plant will be built […]
In Kansas, ICM has signed a contract to develop a gasification demonstration unit with JUM Global, a waste solution developer contracted with the City of San Jose, CA. The demonstration unit will process up to 10 short tons of urban waste biomass per day to produce a high-quality syngas. This gasification demonstration unit will be […]
In Kansas, ICM announced a signed contract with JUM Global, LLC, a global waste solution developer contracted with the City of San Jose, CA., for a gasification demonstration unit using ICM’s proprietary technology. This gasification demonstration unit will be operated at the San José-Santa Clara Regional Wastewater Facility, which will process up to 10 short […]
In Turkey, funding is available for several partners for Transnational Access in BRISK, including the gasification infrastructure at TUBITAK Marmara Research Center. The final deadline for applications is March 15, 2015. TUBITAK Marmara Research Centre (MRC) Energy Institute conducts applied research on advanced energy technologies; namely pyrolysis, gasification and combustion of solid fuels and syngas […]
In Malaysia, a research team from Universiti Teknologi MARA has embarked on a project related to gasification of biomass to produce clean producer gas. This gas mixture can be used as a fuel for internal combustion engines, turbine and fuel cell for power generation.
EPA Ruling on Sludge Gasification Process Opens Door to Environmentally Beneficial Waste Treatment Technology
In Washington, Maxwest Environmental Systems reported that the EPA recently ruled that its patented sewage sludge gasification technology is not an incinerator. MaxWest noted that this is “a major victory not only for clean air and water but also for taxpayers in municipalities looking for a sustainable alternative to costly incineration.” In its findings, the […]
In Canada and the United Kingdom, Nextera announced that it has signed a contract with MWH to supply a biomass gasification system for the Birmingham Bio Power renewable energy power plant in Tyseley. Developed by Carbonarius, the plant will be capable of producing over 10 MW of renewable electricity for sale to the grid. The […]
In Sweden, global engineering and mining firm, Metso, will supply valves and smart instrumentation for Göteborg Energi AB’s GoBiGas project in the Rya harbor, Gothenburg. The first of its kind, the biomass gasification plant will convert biomass into renewable biomethane gas, supplying the natural gas grid. Metso will supply state-of-the-art control and on-off valves as […]
In Alabama, Professor Sushil Ahikari, assistant professor of biosystems engineering at Auburn University received a $335,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to conduct a bioenergy research study, focusing on biomass gasification. His research will set up a program called Research Exerpeinces for Undergraduates, allowing 10 students from research universities to spend 10 weeks on […]
