Price Companies markets new division of biomass services

Price Companies Inc. is looking for the day when biorefineries will be commonplace. To that end, the company plans to leverage its expertise in the mechanics of growing, harvesting, transporting and processing woody biomass to meet the needs of future biorefineries with the formation of the Price Biostock Services division. "We recognize that [biofuels are] what the country needs," said Scott Miller, marketing consultant for the company. "This is a natural evolution of what our company already does." Price Companies plans to serve biorefineries as a specialist in the procurement and preparation of biomass, as well as a consultant for systems and engineering design and facilities management.
