Patrick Madigan - Head of Biomass

In 2015, Patrick joined Bord na Móna as the Head of our continually growing Biomass business. Biomass is any organic plant based material that can be processed to produce electricity, fuel or energy. It is typically derived from sustainable forestry, forestry residues, and other sustainable ‘energy crops’ like willow and miscanthus.

Patrick’s interest in Biomass ignited in 2004 when he started working for a very large sawmill. While there, he was presented with the challenge of finding a use for the sizeable amount of waste material being generated. The solution came when it was found that the waste could be processed into an energy product like wood pellets.
