Global Energy Company Enviva Joins Forces With GoChain to Pilot Blockchain Technology for Sustainable Biomass

Enviva, a global energy company that specializes in sustainable wood bioenergy, announced on Monday it has joined forces with blockchain company GoChain to launch a new pilot program designed to enhance the traceability of sustainable biomass. According to the duo, this pilot program identified a select group of suppliers from Enviva’s wood sourcing regions in the U.S. Southeast to monitor various data elements, such as forest tract locations, load weights, fiber commodity types, and forest types.

“Leveraging GoChain’s blockchain, Enviva was able to monitor the movement of wood fiber in real-time from select forest tracts at the time of harvest to Enviva’s wood pellet production plants with a unique QR code.”

The pilot also reportedly provided real-time geofencing, data analytics, and notification capabilities. In total, more than 1,000 loads of biomass were delivered from the forest to the production plant and recorded “on-chain” during the pilot.

“The results of the pilot yielded considerable insights and the pilot has the potential to further augment the accuracy of Enviva’s proprietary Track & Trace (T&T) system, which provides publicly available data and tracks exactly where the low-value wood used in the production of Enviva biomass comes from. The initial pilot is among the largest-scale, if not the largest-scale, pilot of blockchain technology to date in the global biomass industry. Given the pilot’s success, Enviva anticipates further exploration and piloting of blockchain technology.”

Enviva went on to add that it elected to partner with GoChain on the pilot program because of their dedication to sustainability and innovative green technologies.
