BTEC achieves milestone

The Biomass Thermal Energy Council, a nonprofit association dedicated to advancing the use of biomass for heat and other thermal energy applications, ended its founding member period recently with 57 members in 24 U.S. states and four countries. Formed in January 2009, members of BTEC are on the front line of the movement to grow the biomass thermal industry. BTEC founding members have played a key role in implementing legislative activities, education and outreach efforts, and BTEC's developing research agenda.
