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 apps 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 theyll 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.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
