Informational Program on Feedstock Supply for ORNL Biomass Steam Plant
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory's new wood-fired biomass gasification plant will produce steam to be distributed throughout the Laboratory's campus for both process and space-heating purposes, using waste wood chips from area suppliers. On Thursday, June 14, Dr. Mark Downing, a senior scientist in the Bioenergy Program in ORNL's Environmental Sciences Division, will discuss "Sustainability Considerations for the Biomass Plant Feedstock Supply" in a program co-sponsored by TCWP and Advocates for the Oak Ridge Reservation (AFORR). The event, which will include a question-and-answer session, will begin at 7 p.m. at the Midtown Community Center in Oak Ridge, 102 Robertsville Road (at the corner of Robertsville and the Oak Ridge Turnpike). Refreshments and venue will be provided courtesy of the Oak Ridge section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
