Document Description
Placer County is proposing to construct a two-megawatt wood-to-energy biomass facility that would use gasification technology at the Eastern Regional Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and Landfill. The project site is located on 3.7-acre site in the southernmost area of the property. The proposed project would include construction of an approximately 11,000 sf, two-story structure to house the power generating and emissions control equipment, an approximately one-acre material storage area including a 7,000 sf open air pole barn structure, and additional onsite improvements to support operations at the facility. Biomass materials (fuel) would be processed (ground and screened) at locations from which they are removed (e.g. USFS fuels reduction sites) and delivered via haul truck to the proposed project site.
