Biomass Energy

Convert Waste into Revenue

There’s more to biomass than meets the eye.

Under the right conditions, wastewater treatment plants with codigestion capabilities can turn biomass into sustainable energy, creating revenue-generating opportunities. ESG can help you reposition your assets to capture potential value that would otherwise go to waste.

What Is Biomass?

Biomass is organic matter, such as agricultural crop waste, high-strength organic waste (HSOW), and municipal/organic waste.  Using technology, biomass can be converted into biogas to generate heat or create electricity to power onsite operations. It can also be converted into renewable natural gas (RNG) and sold on the market. For wastewater treatment plants struggling with tight budgets and aging infrastructure, certain biomass substrates can fuel critical infrastructure upgrades.


Sound unbelievable? It’s not. Some wastewater treatment plants with codigestion capabilities are uniquely positioned to extract value from biomass. It just requires the right mindset, the right conditions, and the right partner to help you take advantage of market needs.


At ESG, we have specialized expertise connecting our clients’ assets to markets that provide revenue outside their typical rate base.

We don’t make promises we can’t keep.

We have helped clients like you across the U.S. monetize excess capacity and create additional value to fund critical infrastructure upgrades.
