MINNEAPOLIS, MN – The 7th Annual Heating the Midwest with Renewable Biomass Conference and Expo brings together leaders in the biomass/thermal/renewable energy industry to discuss and formulate strategies for expanding the use of biomass for thermal and combined heat and power (CHP) in the Midwest.
The 7th annual conference will be held May 1-3, 2018 at the Black Bear Casino Resort Conference Center (Carlton, MN – near Duluth, MN).
The program includes important regional topics and the expo provides opportunities to view equipment and meet new industry partners. This event is an outstanding opportunity to support and grow the use of biomass thermal in the Midwest.
This year’s conference agenda will ask how the current base of support for biomass thermal energy might be expanded to generate not only increased policy momentum but also overall familiarity with its operational, economic and societal benefits.
The upper Midwest is rich in both agricultural and forest biomass streams and both sectors generate significant economic activity across the region. To ensure that the value of these resources is maintained, their utilization as a renewable thermal energy source must be both preserved and expanded. This year’s Heating the Midwest agenda is shaping up to closely examine each.
