This includes both Agricultural/Forestry Bioenergy (such as animal waste and plant-based sources) and Municipal Bioenergy (such as municipal wastewater and municipal solid waste).


Examples of Bioenergy May Include:

Plant-based Sources

Organic materials are processed and burned to create steam to spin a turbine that generates electricity.



Municipal Wastewater

Gases arising from the breakdown of waste during the sewage treatment process are captured and later burned to generate electricity.
