Abstract

The purpose of our study is determining if biomass fuel is a feasible means of meeting the quota of renewable energy by the Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS). Interviewing parties involved in the industry, we gathered information regarding the efficiency of biofuel in power generation, and its competitiveness with other renewable energy sources. While biodiesel is currently the most popular alternative to fossil fuel, recycling biomass is a means of supplementing energy while reducing the volume of waste and greenhouse gases.
