Genera launches mobile app for biomass management
Genera Energy, a bioenergy supply chain management company and a feedstock developer, has launched its first mobile agriculture app, Biomass.
The Biomass app was developed to serve as a mobile crop planning and learning tool for biomass farmers and landowners.
The Biomass app offers features such as a biomass crop library complete with detailed information, photos, and range maps for the most utilized biomass crops in the US, along with the ability to overlap crop ranges in a live, interactive map function.
Another key function is a multi-function biomass calculator that helps the user determine how much biomass they’ll need for their specific situation, including conversion technology, conversion rate, and, location.
The app will provide realistic projections and crop suggestions based on actual, in-the-field studies, and crop outcomes for applications including conversion of biomass to biofuels, biochemical, bioproducts, or biopower.
“Probably the most important aspect in developing the app was working directly with biomass producers, project developers, and policy makers across the different aspects of the industry,’ says Sam Jackson, vice president of business development for Genera.
The free version of the app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
