EDF Renewable Energy's Pinelands and Council Energy among 36 biomass facilities in the U.S. to participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP).


SCCEBA would like to recognize EDF Renewable Energy's Pinelands facilities in Dorchester and Allendale Counties and Orangeburg-based Council Energy for participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP)

"BCAP is an essential program which will continue the growth of the biomass industry in South Carolina and across the United States" said Jim Poch, executive director of SCCEBA. "Companies such as EDF Renewable Energy and Council Energy are great assets to the counties in the I-95 Corridor of South Carolina. I hold the belief the I-95 Corridor could be a significant biomass and biofuel production hub and employer" he added.

A US Department of Agriculture new release stated, "Of the total $25 million per year authorized for BCAP, up to 50 percent ($12.5 million) is available each year to assist biomass owners with the cost of delivery of agricultural or forest residues for energy generation. Some BCAP payments will target the removal of dead or diseased trees from National Forests and Bureau of Land Management public lands for renewable energy, which reduces the risk of forest fire."
