This section of the website provides information on facilities in the UP that currently use woody biomass for heat or other energy production purposes. At present there are about half a dozen Wood-Heated Schools that have operational wood-fired boilers. There is a great potential for other schools to save money by converting to wood heat. Assisting such conversions is one of the main goals of the BURN-UP Project.
Other Woody Biomass Users in the UP include a wide variety of facilities. Based on data in the Michigan Air Pollution Reporting System (MAPRS), there is a total of 70 wood-fired boilers in the UP. Getting a handle on the current users will help to improve their viability and to locate additional woody biomass projects.
