City of Lebanon Gasification Project

Rockwood Sustainable Solutions works in partnership with the City of Lebanon and Aires Clean Energy to produce clean electricity from waste wood feedstock. In addition to electricity, the gasification plant produces premium biochar that is used in agriculture, industrial, and filtration applications. Together the partners have been able to develop and operate a "hallmark" project for the City of Lebanon.
