Document Description
Project will install a 3 MW community-scale biomass gasification system on a previously disturbed but currently unused 9-acre portion of the Hat Creek Construction and Materials, Inc. site. Current site uses include offices, construction equipment storage, an asphalt plant, a concrete plant, a rock quarry, wild rice cultivation, and a brewery. The gasification reactor proposed for this Agreement is designed by West Biofuels for wholesale export to the power grid, after power use by the equipment itself is accounted for, and a biochar byproduct for sale as an agricultural amendment. The distinction of biomass gasification systems versus other bioenergy generation systems is that it.
