  • All Fired Up • The National Wildlife Federation Blog

    The campus began using one of its two boilers for biomass commercially in 2004, and since then it has been burning one very particular source of biomass-discarded oat hulls from a Quaker Oats facility in nearby Cedar Rapids. The oat hulls are co-fired with coal so that 50 percent of the heat output of that boiler comes from biomass.Learn More

  • Renewable Energy | Facilities Management - University of Iowa

    In 2003, the University of Iowa began exploring renewable alternatives to coal to fuel the boilers in the power plant. Though developing biomass is one of the important ways to divert the UI power plant away from fossil fuels, it's not necessarily a new idea. For example, wood-burning stoves or campfires are technically fueled by biomass.Learn More
