The City of Newburgh, NY, north of New York City, plans to save as much as $14 per ton on its waste disposal by sending it instead to a soon-to-be-built biomass gasification plant in nearby Montgomery, NY. The plant, which is being built by Taylor Biomass Energy, features a proprietary biomass gasification system that can convert a wide variety of feedstocks into a synthesis gas (syngas) which is converted into clean energy in a process the company believes to be more efficient than competing technologies. Taylor says that it can achieve an overall power generation efficiency of over 40%, nearly twice that of conventional combustion (or direct combustion) technologies in today's marketplace.
