BioResource Management Inc. (BRM) was part of a team that submitted a proposal and was selected to conduct a state wide biomass feedstock assessment for the Florida Legislature. The assessment, being administered by the Florida Forest Service, will examine the potential feedstock available for bioenergy facilities, and will include generation rates, existing and future users, and landowner profiles for identifying potential biomass suppliers. The team includes F4Tech and Photo Science, a GIS imagery company. “We are proud to be a part of this important work, and look forward to bringing practical biomass experience to the process”, said Richard Schroeder, the President of BRM. Under the agreement the draft product of the analysis will be submitted in March 2013, and a final version presented to the legislature in May 2013.
BioResource Management, Inc. (BRM) was invited and gave a presentation to the Short Rotation Woody Crop Working Group Conference, a biennial event sponsored by the Us Department of Energy and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge TN. Richard Schroeder, the President of BRM, presented a discussion titled, “Feedstock Considerations for Commercial Facilities, and the Gainesville 100MW Biomass Plant”. BRM reviewed many years of actual experience in developing, procuring and managing biomass supplies for facilities, and provided an update of the Gainesville facility.
