PLACER COUNTY, Calif. (KRNV & -- The Placer County Planning Commission last week approved a conditional use permit for a proposed biomass facility.

The project will consist of a two megawatt facility that will use woody biomass from the surrounding forestlands to create energy.

The project will be located on county owned property at the Cabin Creek materials recycling facility off Highway 89 near the Placer/Nevada county border. Placer County says the facility will use gasification technology to convert the biomass material into a synthesis gas, which would then be used as fuel for an internal combustion engine/generator that would produce electricity.
