Biomass Power Plant Managers

Overview

Biomass power plant managers oversee the operations of biomass power plants or substations. They work at biomass power facilities that generate power from biomass materials like wood, paper sludge, coal, or other waste or refuse. They supervise biomass power plant operations or maintenance staff, making sure maintenance activities are followed according to regulations. They monitor and adjust equipment to ensure appropriate production levels are met and comply with environmental standards. The Department of Labor does not yet have data specifically for biomass power plant managers, but does provide information on industrial production managers, who share many of the same responsibilities as those of biomass power plant managers. In May 2016, there were 168,400 industrial production managers working in the United States.
