Genera Energy Launches Unique Biomass Crop Planning App

In a growing field of agriculture apps, Genera develops a specialized mobile app for planning, selecting and calculating biofuel crop needs for use with Android and Apple smart devices

VONORE, Tenn. August 5, 2015 - Genera Energy, Inc., a top bioenergy supply chain management company, and a worldwide leader in feedstock development and supply chain innovation announced the launch of its first mobile agriculture app, Biomass. The Biomass app was developed to serve as a practical, easy-to-use mobile crop planning and learning tool for biomass farmers and landowners.

"We are very pleased with the Biomass app's features," said Sam Jackson, vice president of business development for Genera Energy, Inc. "The information that the app is built on is the result of years of research and development in the biofuels management industry."

The Biomass app offers features such as a biomass crop library complete with detailed information, photos and range maps for the most utilized biomass crops in the U.S., along with the ability to overlap crop ranges in a live, interactive map function. Another key function is a multi-function biomass calculator that helps the user determine how much biomass they'll need for their specific situation, including conversion technology, conversion rate, and location. The results can then be emailed to the user if desired. For those wishing to convert biomass to biofuels, biochemical, bioproducts, or biopower, this app will provide realistic projections and crop suggestions based on actual, in-the-field studies and crop outcomes.

"Probably the most important aspect in developing the app was working directly with biomass producers, project developers, and policy makers across the different aspects of the industry" said Jackson. "This helped us to develop an app specifically targeted to what users actually needed and wanted."

The free version of the app is now available for both Apple- and Android-based devices. Visit the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to download the app today.

Featured Product



You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
