Missouri-Based Biotechnology Company CEO To Discuss Major Biomass Progress
MEXICO, MO – The Environmental Protection Agency has invited Nancy Heimann, founder and CEO of Enginuity Worldwide, to speak during the EPA’s upcoming biomass workshop on April 7th in Washington, D.C. At the event, Heimann will discuss how advances in technology have transformed the role biomass can play in carbon emissions across the energy industry.
“I am honored to join the EPA and industry experts in Washington, D.C. to discuss recent developments in the biomass industry that could significantly reduce our nation’s carbon footprint. There have been significant advancements in biomass technology over the last few years, so I look forward to discussing how these advancements could be incorporated into the nation’s plan to bring forward carbon beneficial approaches,” said Nancy Heimann, the company’s founder and CEO.
Enginuity’s patented rotary compression technology transforms abundant, locally grown feedstocks such as corn stover, sorghum stover and woody waste, into energy-dense, easily transportable biomass. The technology does not use an external heat source, like other biomass products, and uses a much wider range of homegrown, readily available agricultural byproducts.
Studies show that if this technology was utilized in every U.S. coal-burning power plant at just a 10 percent co-fire rate, carbon emissions could be reduced by 150 million metric tons a year, or 11 percent of the industry’s current total emissions. The workshop is open to the public and is free to attend. To learn more, click here.
