The Integrated Biomass Energy Campus (IBEC) integrates environmental benefit with economic development.
Businesses at IBEC use various tree species and log specifications to manufacture a variety of wood products. These include:
• premium firewood• densified heating fuels• posts and poles• landscaping timbers
Biomass supports forest health, restoration and fire mitigation projects on public and private woodlands.
IBEC's capabilities will increase with a Sort Yard and 100 kW biomass-powered co-generation (combined heat and power) facility. These new investments will pump over $2.5 million per year into our local economy. We expect to add additional 8-10 new jobs over the next year! This project will eventually support 25 much-needed family-wage jobs.
