The 2014 International Biomass Conference & Expo is pleased to offer conference attendees two compelling industry tours on Thursday, March 27. Our first tour offers attendees an opportunity to see one of the newest and most technologically advanced organic waste recycling facilities in North America with a facility visit to Harvest Power Orlando. Nearly 130,000 tons of organic waste will be recycled by this facility yielding nearly 6.6 MW of power and heat.
