BTUs and Costs of biomass vs Propane

Posted by Morgan White on March 16, 2016

  1. Propane contains 91,333 BTU’s per gallon @ current price of $0.7858 per gallon = $8.60 / MBTU
  2. Miscanthus contains 14MBTU’s per ton @ proposed price of $50/ton = $3.57/MBTU

Propane is 2.4 times more expensive to burn to achieve the same amount of thermal energy.
