The Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC) is a nonprofit industry association dedicated to advancing the use of biomass for heat and other thermal energy applications.

BTEC is an association of biomass fuel producers, appliance manufacturers and distributors, supply chain companies and non-profit organizations that view biomass thermal energy as a renewable, responsible, clean and energy-efficient pathway to meeting America’s energy needs. BTEC engages in research, education, and public advocacy for the fast growing biomass thermal energy industry. More >>



Biomass Residuals and CHP Focus of February 10th BTEC Webinar

From wood residuals large and small, combined heat and power (CHP) from waste biomass is an economic and proven means of waste elimination. The benefits are indisputable: distributed biomass shrinks the radius to acquire and transport fuel sources, and can eliminate the costs of transporting and landfilling biomass waste streams. Today, technology is in place to generate heat and electricity from large to small-scale biomass in ways that are economical and efficient. 

Join this February 10th webinar at 1PM ET from the Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC) and hear three companies’ experiences in generating heat and electricity from biomass residuals. Register here >>
