The launch of the Bioenergy Association of California was announced in February, 2013 by the Sacramento Business Journal
An association formed to promote bioenergy generation in California is set to launch at a reception at the Sutter Club in Sacramento, set from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday. “Bioenergy is creating jobs and economic development while producing renewable energy for homes and businesses, and renewable fuels for motor vehicles,” Neil Black, president of California Bioenergy LLC (CalBio) and chairman of the BAC board, said in a news release. “It also protects public health and safety by reducing landfill waste, wildfire risks and greenhouse gas emissions, and can significantly reduce air and water pollution.” The organization aims to promote community-scale bioenergy generation from organic waste sources through policy advocacy, public education and outreach and research and communication of industry best practices. Bioenergy includes electricity, biogas, renewable liquid fuels and combined heat and power.
