Phoenix Energy Signs Agreement to Build California's First Forest Biomass Gasification Plant Near Lake Tahoe

Phoenix Energy signed agreements to build and operate a biomass gasification plant near Lake Tahoe, California. The 2-MW plant will utilize forest biomass from Placer County's fire threat reduction activities to make electricity, heat and biochar - a solid carbon byproduct that is used as a soil conditioner and filter media. The plant will be the first to use forest-based fuel in California. The Lake Tahoe project is Phoenix Energy's third biomass gasification plant in state and when fully operational it will be the company's largest plant.
