I Power Awarded Biomass Grant

I Power Energy Systems announced that it has been awarded one of several grants made by the Indiana Office of Energy & Defense Development (OED) through its Biomass Feasibility Study Program.

The purpose of the grant from OED is to develop technically and economically feasible biomass to energy projects. The I Power program addresses the use of animal waste from both swine and dairy to produce the heat and electricity for farm operations using anaerobic digestion and gasification technology. This program utilizes the I Power combined heat and power units that have been developed specifically for biogas applications.

“We consider this a very positive move for I Power and the State of Indiana in terms of product opportunity and environmental impact and we appreciate the OED’s vision and initiative in implementing such a program,” said Terry Pahls, president of I Power.
