The Bioenergy Association of California

The Bioenergy Association of California (BAC) was established in 2013 to promote sustainable bioenergy development.  Bioenergy includes renewable electricity, low carbon transportation fuels and pipeline biogas generated from organic waste such as dairy and agricultural waste, food and yard waste, wastewater treatment, organic waste diverted from landfills, and forest biomass .  BAC’s members include private companies, public agencies, local governments, investors, consultants, nonprofits, individuals and others interested in promoting community-scale bioenergy generation.  BAC focuses on policy advocacy, public education and outreach, research, and industry best practices.

SB 687 (Renewable Gas Standard) Passes First Committee

SB 687, by Senator Ben Allen, will establish the country's first Renewable Gas Standard (RGS) to increase in-state production of renewable gas. Renewable gas provides the lowest carbon fuels of any kind and flexible generation, renewable power. SB 687 will create thousands of jobs, reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, help California meet its landfill reduction goals and protect against wildfire.

Governor Signs Bills Important to Bioenergy!!!

Governor Brown signed three important bills that will increase the availability of organic material for bioenergy, compost and other productive uses, rather than wasting it in landfills, and will promote a range of technologies to convert that feedstock to clean, renewable energy and transportation fuels.

BAC members include private companies, public agencies, local governments and others  working to promote sustainable bioenergy development in California.

BAC supports policies to promote renewable electricity, low carbon transportation fuels, pipeline biogas and greenhouse gas reductions from organic waste.
