ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the conversion of the town of Reynolds from a reliance on fossil fuels to biomass-based fuels in Indiana. With the implementation of BioTown USA, a template will be set that simultaneously promotes energy security, rural development, profitable agriculture and a green, thriving natural resource environment. Biomass energy technologies increase the utilization and conservation of energy by managing the unused energy in plant material. Building a biomass energy system requires knowledge of the available biomass materials or feedstocks.
