Emerson launches bio-mass Smart Energy Initiative

Emerson’s new Industrial Energy Group plans to convert huge power plants used in manufacturing facilities, refineries and foundries into bio-mass-burning hybrids to produce the needed energy to run these giant plants more cheaply and cleanly.

Emerson said today it expects this to become a $2 billion market due to higher prices for fossil fuels and new global emissions mandates.
