Oregon biomass projects receive federal support

In Oregon, US, three projects dedicated to generating energy from sustainable sources have been awarded $3 million (€2.4 million) in government funding.

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.
