Off the Shelf Technologies Creating Energy Innovation and Triple Bottom Line Project Developments

Biomass Energy


Marc Rappaport originated the design and business concept for a woody waste cogeneration plant, independent of the wood products industry in 1981.

BioMass One is a 30 MW, 50 million dollar facility which removes 355,000 tons of materials from local landfills and landscapes. The facility creates enough electricity to power 20,000 homes and directly supports jobs for 67 households.

In addition to creating clean and renewable power, BioMass One provides a valuable community service by supporting residents to deposit their waste as opposed to burn it in the open.  The carbon capture benefit of the onsite and satellite services are unprecedented within a community scale production facility.
