After Hosting 3 in a Row, NH Will Not Host This Year’s Northeast Biomass Heating Conference

Posted by erik devaney

BERLIN, N.H. (AP) — Just as a New Hampshire biomass heating project is picking up steam, a regional biomass heating conference is bidding the state goodbye.

New Hampshire hosted all three previous Northeast Biomass Heating conferences — one in Nashua and two in Manchester. But expo organizers say they need bigger quarters to accommodate vendors who couldn’t participate in the past because space was capped at 50 companies.

The 2012 conference will be held at the Sarasota Springs City Center in New York in March.

Construction of a $275 million biomass power plant in economically-distressed Berlin began in October. The plant is being built on the site of a defunct paper pulp mill.

The project is expected to create 300 construction jobs and 40 permanent jobs.
