Looking for a cookie-cutter plan for your biomass energy facilities? Well, you are going to be looking for a long time. They simply do not exist. And the fact is, they probably never will. As a result, it is absolutely essential that you find a biomass engineering company to help you gain a new perspective on your project.
Since there are so many aspects to the biomass engineering puzzle, you need to find an engineering company that can perform duties at all stages of the development process. And perhaps the most important of all of these phases is the initial planning period.
The importance of an initial feasibility study
Before ever executing your plan to build biomass energy facilities, you need to contact an engineering company who can perform a feasibility study for you. During these studies, they will determine the quantity and quality of biomass available near where you intend on building your facilities.
Why is this so important? Imagine spending millions on a facility to convert biomass into electricity, only to find that your fuel source is inadequate. Either there just is not enough available, or the prices are too steep to allow you to be profitable. What then? You end up with a facility that just sits there and wastes money by the second. What a horrible scenario. But employing the right biomass engineering company will ensure that this never happens to you.
You might wonder what you can expect to get from a feasibility study. Basically it will be an in depth analysis of your area’s biomass fuel sources. The company will talk to local farmers as well as those who buy and sell biomass. From there they will determine how much you can expect to pay for raw materials, as well as what sort of supply is available. This will also include analysis of those com
