A Natural Renewable Fuel
We produce a baseload natural renewable fuel, providing good long-term jobs both in the field and in our plants.
The Zilkha Black® Pellet
Zilkha Biomass Energy produces the Zilkha Black® Pellet, a proprietary water resistant biomass pellet that is transportable like coal.
Continuing Our Legacy
Our prior company, Zilkha Renewable Energy, made it possible for more than 400,000 households to switch to green wind power by the time it was sold to Energias de Portugal. Zilkha Biomass Energy is a continuation of that legacy.
Biomass is the world’s oldest & most efficient solar battery. The amount of sunlight that reaches the earth’s surface during one hour is sufficient to power the entire world for a year.
The Zilkha Black® Pellet is a revolutionary advancement in the pellet industry: our additive-free pellet is water-resistant and durable.
We have developed proprietary technology that powers commercial and industrial facilities using a direct-fired biomass-fueled pressurized gas turbine unit.
We are dedicated to innovative sustainable energy solutions. Our prior company, Zilkha Renewable Energy, made it possible for more than 400,000 households to switch to green wind power by the time it was sold to Energias de Portugal.

The World Bioenergy Award is an award for an individual who has made a difference: a business leader, politician or researcher who in a crucial way has furthered the development of the bioenergy sector.
A comprehensive analysis of greenhouse gas emissions reveals that despite the long transportation distance, burning imported wood is still better than using fossil fuels.
“These projects remove and use excess wood – the same trees and brush that fuel the catastrophic wildfires we’ve seen in the last several years – from our nation’s forests.”
Zilkha Biomass Energy and Valmet have signed a five-year collaboration agreement to bring steam exploded black pellets to the market.
Pellet export volumes from North America to Europe continued to rise during the second quarter of 2013, representing steady growth for the past seven quarters.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration has published the January issue of its Short-Term Energy Outlook, which provides its first 2015 forecasts for wood biomass and waste biomass energy production.
