WA House Gives Boost to Biomass Anaerobic Digesters

Olympia, Washington [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Washington State House of Representatives furthered its commitment to green energy last week according to the office of Rep. Jeff Morris (D-Anacortes), the prime sponsor of the legislation. Under Morris’s proposal, state agencies would purchase all available power produced by anaerobic digesters, small power plants, usually located on a dairy farm or cattle ranch that converts methane gas from animal waste into electricity. Morris said biomass technology must be developed to supplement weather- dependent wind and solar power and added that digester technology is also important for a viable dairy industry. House bill 2349 passed the House with wide bipartisan support and now awaits action in the Washington State Senate.
