City commission approves Rentech's biomass plant
In the US, the Port St. Joe, Florida, City Commission has approved Rentech's Northwest Florida Renewable Energy Center.
The renewable project will generate 55MW of power from 930 tonnes a day of woody biomass. Rentech and Progress Energy Florida have already signed a contract whereby Progress Energy Florida will acquire most of the power.
The $225 million (€166 million) project was being developed by Biomass Energy Holdings up until earlier this year when Rentech acquired it.
