Creating energy from biomass, such as orchard prunings and other farm leftovers, will receive a boost from grants announced yesterday. A specialist at the University of California, Davis, studies how to use green waste and leftovers collected from restaurants and other institutions, to produce gases that power turbines to produce electricity. The project was awarded a grant of nearly $500 thousand dollars from a federal program to conduct air quality research.
