SUGAR LAND--April 15, 2019--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Renewable energy is enjoying broad support across the U.S., but enthusiasm for biomass seems to be waning. Expansions in biomass and waste-fired generation have ground to a halt, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). After growing from 2004 through 2014, when it hit peak generation of 71.7 million megawatt-hours (MWh), U.S. biomass-fired capacity in 2018 was 2% below 2014 levels. Nonetheless, Industrial Info is tracking nearly $2.2 billion in active biomass-fueled projects across the U.S., nearly $1 billion of which is attributed to projects under construction.

Within this article: Details on some of the highest-valued biomass projects under construction across the U.S., including those from companies such as Georgia Renewable Power LLC, Red Rock Biofuels LLC, Georgia-Pacific LLC and Koch Industries Incorporated.
