Until now, biomass gasification plants used gasification techniques developed for processing fossil fuels which did not take advantage of the naturally high chemical reactivity of energy crops. Now, energy crops, such as the switchgrass pictured here, can be processed in a highly efficient way to produce SynGas ("synthetic gas") for use in industrial processes such as WindSoHy's CAES power plants.

vermont_syngas_plant.pngWindSoHy's use of SynGas from switchgrass will reduce harmful emissions and increase the price stability of power from our CAES plants. It will also help WindSoHy earn the distinction of being the first baseload plant operating to use only renewable resources.
