Biomass Energy Company:  3 Bio energy Innovators

A biomass energy company is an eco friendly alternative that more and more people are turning to for their energy needs. From heating, to fueling their vehicles, people around the globe have made a choice to go green for good. 

In this article we will be discussing the 3 biomass energy companies that are leaders in the alternative energy market.

Biomass Company: Biomass Engineering Limited

Biomass engineering Limited is an international leader in the design, production and installation of Biomass Gasification CHP Systems.

They are considered pioneers in the development of biomass technology, having invested more than fifteen years of research and development and have been supported by some of the UK’s leading academia in the field.

Biomass Engineering Limited has been able to help public and private organizations across the world to utilize the power of biomass technology by producing carbon neutral, modular distributed alternative energy.

Biomass Engineering utilizes energy crops, waste wood, wood chippings and forestry wood as a source of fuel. This fuel is fed into a gasification process which produces a gas which is fed into engines that in turn produce a clean form of biomass energy.

In 2012, Biomass Engineering won the design competition for the CCHP scheme for the Hongqiao Central Business District in Shanghai. Work is now underway by Biomass on the Design Concept Optimization.

Biomass Energy Company: Aventine Renewable Energy, Inc.

Aventine Renewable Energy, Inc. is a leading biomass energy company that produces and markets ethanol and related by-products.

Through their production facilities they market and distribute ethanol to many of the leading energy companies in the U.S.

Their biomass energy company campus is located on the east bank of the Illinois River, approximately 160 miles southwest of Chicago. This bio company has been producing ethanol at this facility since 1981.  The facility was originally built in 1899 as a sugar processing facility. 

Through the years, the facility has undergone numerous upgrades and changes before and since the production of ethanol began in 1981. 

The Pekin biomass energy company campus has two distinct facilities; one utilizing the wet mill process for producing ethanol and another utilizing the dry mill process for producing ethanol.

The Pekin wet mill is one of the few coal-fired, corn wet mill plants in the U.S., and currently has the capacity to produce approximately 100 million gallons of ethanol annually. 

The wet mill is the original mill at the Pekin site.  The wet mill consumes approximately 38.5 million bushels of corn annually at full capacity.

Co-products produced by the wet mill include corn gluten feed, corn germ, corn meal, distiller's’ yeast and corn condensed distillers solubles (“CCDS”). 

In addition, the fermentation process yields carbon dioxide.  These co-products are sold for various consumer uses into large commodity markets.

Corn gluten feed, corn gluten meal and CCDS are used as animal feed ingredients, corn germ is sold for the extraction of corn oil for human consumption, and carbon dioxide is sold for food-grade use such as beverage carbonation and dry ice.

The Pekin dry mill was added in January 2007 and can produce 57 million gallons of ethanol annually. 

The fuel source for the Pekin dry mill is natural gas. 

The co-products produced by the dry mill include both wet and dry distiller’s grains with solubles and carbon dioxide. 

Distiller’s grain products are used as animal feed.  The carbon dioxide is sold for food-grade use such as beverage carbonation and dry ice.
