The high cost of heat has been central to years of discussion and planning for the new pilot biomass boiler system now coming to life at the spectacular Southeast Alaska Discovery Center in Ketchikan.
The center, which provides a wealth of information to more than a million visitors each year, has replaced two oil-fired boilers with one custom designed, highly efficient system to be fueled by local wood densifiedinto fuel pucks. The boiler system is expected to serve as a showcase location to be replicated in similar facilities throughout Alaska.

What’s green, grows on trees, creates jobs and supports healthier forests in rural America?
Answer: woody biomass.
If you were enraptured with the cap-and-trade debates in the House Energy and Commerce Committee two years ago, you’re likely already familiar with my passion and advocacy for energy produced from woody biomass.
But most of you probably had something better to do.
Woody biomass is the general term for byproducts from forest management projects — limbs, tops, needles, leaves and other scrap waste. After forest restoration projects on federal land, this waste has traditionally been put in piles to rot or be burned.
