Biomass Waste Streams
BC Bioenergy Network supports the development of electricity, heat and valuable fuels using biomass from organic materials, including wood waste, agriculture crops, animal manure, food waste and all forms of municipal waste.
Multiple conversion technologies apply in the development of biomass waste streams, including biochemical or thermochemical conversion, anaerobic digestion, aerobic decomposition, combustion, densification and gasification.
Our Value Streams
- Using by-products from sawmills, pulp mills and other forest operations to produce bioenergy, biofuels, biochemicals and bioproducts.
- Forest biomass can be converted into ethanol, bio-oil, and bio-crude feedstocks used by fuel suppliers.
- Harvesting of biomass and its densification as fuel inputs for a variety of energy processing systems.
- Collection and utilization of landfill gases.
- Reclaiming heat and biogas from municipal wastewater treatment systems.
- Utilization of municipal solid waste to produce energy in the form of heat, power and renewable gas.
- Using animal waste and crop residues to produce renewable natural gas, heat, power, and fertilizer.
- Using fats, oils and greases to produce low-carbon fuels through co-processing at BC refineries.
