The upcoming Taylor Biomass Energy, LLC (TBE) waste recycling and energy project in Montgomery, New York, has been approved for a Tier 1 Renewable Energy Standard (RES) Provisional Certification. TBE says in a news release that the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has found the facility provisionally meets the eligibility requirements for its gasification of adulterated biomass waste streams. Adulterated biomass contained items such as wet food scraps, non-painted waste wood and other biomass in the waste stream.
The target date for the commercial operation of the Taylor-Montgomery plant is April 15, 2021.

TBE says greenhouse gas emissions from its plant will be “well below” federal EPA and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation limits.
