Biopower

Arkansas currently has number of facilities that harness biopower. Ashdown Mill and Pine Bluff Mill both use wood and derived fuels for combined heat and power. Other facilities, like Riceland Foods utilize agriculture byproducts as their feedstock. Additionally, there are landfills in Arkansas that are collecting the landfill gas emitted, which can either be used directly as a source of natural gas or used to power engines that generate electricity, as can be seen in the picture below of Two Pine Landfill in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Check back in the future for more information about these facilities operations in Arkansas.

  • NREL BioEnergy Atlas

    Built into Google Maps, BioEnergy Atlas includes two interactive maps, BioPower and BioFuels. These maps allow you to compare and analyze biomass feedstocks, biopower and biofuels data from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Learn more>>

  • Bioenergy KDF

    Similar to the BioEnergy Atlas, this tool supported by the Department of Energy incorporates data shared by government and the bioenergy industry.  The KDF examines the economic and environmental impacts of development options for biomass feedstock production, biorefineries, and related infrastructure.
