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.
