Maine's Conversation about Biological Power

When we talk about biological power, we mean power that is generated from converting materials that were once living, such as trees or other plants.  We will have several sub-headings (such as biodiesel, biomass and ethanol) under biological power in time; for now they are all under one umbrella.

We invite Maine's experts and novices to post their questions, concerns, insights, rants, praise or technical information about the many forms of biological power available in Maine here. Please join the conversation and check back often for updates.
