Primary Authors: Morris, Gregory
Published: 2000, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden, Colorado
Abstract: California has a great diversity of agriculture and forestry, activities that produce large amounts of solid wastes and residues. During the 1980s California developed the largest and most diverse biomass energy industry in the world. Biomass energy production has become an important component of the state’s environmental infrastructure, diverting solid wastes from open burning and disposal in landfills to a beneficial use application.
