Oregon biomass projects receive federal support
The US department of Energy’s State Energy Program split the funds between the counties of Lake, Tillamook and Wallowa.
The Lakeview Cogenerative project received $1.7 million to convert wood waste into bioelectricity and heat.
The second biomass project is set to receive a total of $1 million to produce electricity from manure and other waste sourced from dairy farms.
Finally, $275,000 will go towards aiding the construction of a biomass plant in the Wallowa County Wood Products Campus.
The projects must be completed by 15 February 2012.
