Biomass Magazine Launches New Biogas Producer Map Highlighting On-Farm Digesters and Wastewater Treatment Plants

One of Many Biofuels Maps Produced and Offered by BBI International

GRAND FORKS, ND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- Biomass Magazine announced this week the completion of Biomass Magazine's 2015 U.S. Biogas Producer Map and list. This is the only online map produced that plots the location and status of all U.S. biogas production from on-farm facilities and wastewater treatment plants producing grid-connected bioenergy.

"We're very excited to take our first step towards bringing our biogas data and map offering to the same level our readers and audience enjoy in the biomass power, pellets, advanced biofuel, ethanol and biodiesel segments," says Tim Portz, vice president of content and executive editor at BBI International. "Biogas is an exciting piece of the larger biomass-to-energy space that is experiencing great momentum right now."

With limited aggregated data on biogas production available to the public, BBI is investing substantial resources into the project. According to Portz, "The biogas industry is a challenging one to get your arms around from a geospatial and data perspective. Digesters are deployed into so many different industrial and agricultural applications and they are capable of producing heat, power or vehicle fuels. They are unique in that way and drawing a box around which digesters to include was a challenge."

The team at Biomass Magazine focused on creating a comprehensive and accurate dataset available for anyone looking to find information about biogas producers. "We decided two years ago that for an online map to be of any value, we had to move towards dropping the pin right on top of the facility," says Portz. "For a long time, our online maps were like most of the others that are available. The pin was dropped on a zip code or a street address of an administrative office. We went through the effort to identify the exact latitudes and longitudes of each facility in the industries we cover and the difference is immediately apparent."

The biogas producer map currently highlights on-farm digesters and wastewater treatment plants that deliver electricity to the grid. Over the course of the next several months Biomass Magazine will be adding community digesters and digesters that deliver a thermal load to industrial facilities such as breweries.

Printed versions of the map are free to all subscribers of Biomass Magazine and will be mailed at the beginning of next year. If you are interested in viewing the new online biogas map visit www.BiomassMagazine.com.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
