Ausenco has a long history in supporting clients with biomass power generation. Since 1982, we have made beneficial use of wood waste, paper waste, biogas and mixed fuels in installations up to 90 MW in size. 

Our experience base in processes and integrating power and process solutions provides us with an advantage in offering ingenious solutions for our clients’ biomass needs.

At Ausenco, we understand that there are key differences between biomass and the more conventional coal and gas power generation, which make the utilisation of biomass more complex. We have the required skills and expertise in materials handling and process technology to power our clients’ biomass projects and the knowledge to overcome any storage, controls and process issues. We have also explored the production of non-fuel products from biomass such as sugars and binders for the chemical and food industries.
