• Welcome to Bioenergy

    Bioenergy is derived from organic materials including wood waste, agriculture crops, animal manure, food waste, as well as municipal waste streams (solids, waste water and landfill gases). Through conversion processes, this organic material can be transformed to produce electricity, heat, valuable biofuels and specialty chemicals.
