Biomass can be used to produce renewable electricity and thermal energy and is often used as a substitute to fossil fuels. Co-firing of biomass and fossil fuels (usually coal) is a low-cost approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving cost-efficiency and reducing air pollutants in existing power plants.
Biofuels are a form of biomass which is converted directly into liquid fuel to help to meet transportation fuel needs. The two most common types of biofuel in use today are ethanol and biodiesel.
Peterson and Control Union provide inspection and testing services to verify the quantity and quality of a wide range of biomass such as woodchips, sawdust and wood pellets. Our global presence ensures we can offer a full range of cargo inspection services throughout the entire supply chain.
