The Oregon Build Environment and Sustainable Technologies Center awarded a $86,000 grant to HM3 Energy.

Gresham-based HM3 Energy is developing technology to turn biomass into a coal replacement by baking briquettes at high heat — a process called torrefaction — which results in an energy dense fuel source.

Through the Oregon BEST grant, Michael Milota, a professor at Oregon State University's Department of Wood Science and Engineering, will lead testing of common Oregon biomass fuels including ponderosa pine, western juniper, Douglas fir and red alder for emissions data. HM3 will use that data in developing a commercial torrefaction facility that will meet environmental air quality requirements.
