Biomass Gasification.

Author: 
Harstad, Rachel.

Every year, small businesses spend $60 billion on energy costs. That number is only going to increase with the rapidly rising prices of fossil fuels. Many small businesses are looking for more efficient ways to heat their businesses at rates that are more economical. One way some businesses are doing just that is by using biomass gasification. Biomass gasification is an existing technology that has 'resurfaced' when fossil fuel prices get too large for businesses to handle. The technology of gasification has been around since the late nineteenth century but has been widely used only a few times around the world, until now. This report focused on the process of biomass gasification and its application to small businesses in particular, a one of its kind case study in Morris, Minnesota.
