Biomass Market Harnesses Combined Heat and Power

Renewable Energy World: Two big trends are converging in the world of power generation -- Combined Heat & Power (CHP) and biomass. CHP is gaining ground in many areas of the world due to the fact that its superior efficiency often results in major economic gains (CHP takes the waste heat from a turbine and uses it to generate steam which is often uses in district heating, or in industrial processes).

While natural gas has been the favored fuel, facilities with available biomass are finding ways to cut costs further by harnessing this resource to provide additional power and heat.
