Yosemite Clean Energy has secured its first plant site for commercial-scale production
Each Yosemite Clean Energy biofuels plant will be locally owned by farmers and forest landowners, who in return will provide wood waste, gathered at the end of the orchard's lifecycle or through sustainable forest management.
Vice-President for Business Development Robert Jackson said, "This is new. This type of ownership in biofuels facilities like ours is the democratization of clean energy. We're providing an all-new mineral right from a waste stream and converting it to a revenue stream for farmers and forest communities."
