Bioenergy from organic waste can provide renewable power that is available when needed, also known as “firm” power. California will need thousands of megawatts of firm, renewable power to fill in when solar and wind power are not available and for periods when batteries are not sufficient. Bioenergy is also the only form of power that can be carbon negative since it reduces emissions of black carbon or methane from organic waste that would otherwise be burned, left to decay, or sent to a landfill. Bioenergy reduces those climate super pollutants from organic waste, emissions from the fossil fuels that it replaces, and from the use of its co-products, either biochar or compost.
