Turning Organic Waste Into Low-Carbon Energy

Promoting Sustainable Bioenergy Development in California


The Bioenergy Association of California

The Bioenergy Association of California (BAC) was established in 2013 to promote sustainable bioenergy development.

Bioenergy includes renewable electricity, low-carbon transportation fuels, pipeline biogas, and renewable hydrogen generated from organic waste such as food and yard waste, wastewater and landfill biogas, dairy and agricultural waste, organic waste diverted from landfills, and forest waste.

BAC’s members include private companies, public agencies, local governments, investors, consultants, nonprofits, individuals, and others interested in promoting community-scale bioenergy generation.
