  • Altenergy.org - The term "biomass" refers to organic matter that has stored energy through the process of photosynthesis. It exists in one form as plants and may be transferred through the food chain to animals' bodies and their wastes, all of which can be converted for everyday human use through processes such as combustion, which releases the carbon dioxide stored in the plant material.
  • Biomass Boilers - Eco Link Resources are a leading supplier and installer of Biomass energy technology working across the UK, meeting the demands of public sector, commercial and domestic clients. The site has case studies of where the technology has been used and also a carbon counter showing how much C02 has been saved through biomass technology to date.
  • Biomass Energy Centre - A 'one stop shop' to provide information to anyone in the UK with an interest in biomass derived solid, liquid and gaseous fuels and associated conversion technologies.
  • Biomass Energy Crop & Biomass Power Working Group  - Information about biomass energy crop research projects in Florida, including studies on crop production, harvesting and grinding, and co-firing with coal.
  • Biomass Energy Foundation - The BEF was founded in 1984 by my good friend and mentor, Dr. Harry LaFontaine. Harry built gasifiers during World War II as a cover for his nighttime activities in the Danish Underground. When the "energy crisis" struck in 1974, Harry gave lectures and demonstrations on gasification in many universities around the East. He converted a Lincoln Continental stretch limo to WoodGas and demonstrated it and lectured on gasification in many Eastern colleges.
  • Biomass Energy Resource Center - The Biomass Energy Resource Center (BERC) is an independent, national nonprofit organization located in Montpelier, Vermont with a Midwest office in Madison, Wisconsin, that assists communities, colleges and universities, state and local governments, businesses, utilities, schools, and others in making the most of their local biomass energy resources.
  • California Biomass Energy Alliance - Welcome to the Web Site of the California Biomass Energy Alliance (CBEA), an association representing 36 biomass-fueled power plants in California. CBEA members are the plant owners and operators whose fuels come from the forestry, agricultural, and urban wood waste sectors. Collectively, the 25 member companies represent approximately 700MW of generating capacity.

Santa Barbara

Discover the city of Santa Barbara, California, the birthplace of Earth Day. A 1969 oil platform blowout off the coast of Santa Barbara led to a wave of environmental laws nationwide. That gave impetus to what we consider now the cornerstones to the modern environmental movement. A year later, the first Earth Day was held followed by the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency. A succession of other laws protecting water, marine life and endangered species followed.
