Employment Prospects


Biomass plant technicians work for companies that convert plant or animal matter into renewable energy. Biomass power plants are located throughout the United States, however, many are based in areas where biomass crops are grown because biomass is bulky and can be expensive to transport. Companies such as Covanta, ReEnergy Holdings LLC, Sierra Pacific Industries, and Wheelabrator Technologies employ biomass plant technicians. The Department of Labor reports that there are 12,270 plant and system operators, including biomass plant technicians, working in the United States.
