Researchers Convert 80 Percent Of Biomass Into High-Value Products

The three main components of non-edible plant matter can now be turned into high-value products in economically favorable yields. Using the concept of an integrated biorefinery, researchers showed how multiple products are created. The streams are similar to those used in a petroleum refinery. With the new approach, non-edible plant matter could become a promising […]

Biofuel From Forests Lightens Jetliner Carbon Footprint

Alaska Airlines made history recently, flying the first commercial flight using the world’s first renewable, alternative jet fuel made from the remains of logging and thinning in sustainably managed forests. Aviation biofuel is made from forest residuals, the limbs and branches that are left after the harvesting of managed forests. The renewable, clean jet fuel […]

USDA, DOE Announce Interagency Biomass Research And Development Initiative Funding

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), announced that up to $9 million in funding will be made available through the Biomass Research and Development Initiative (BRDI) to increase the nation’s energy independence by supporting the development of bioenergy feedstocks, […]

Biofuels: From Wood To Wing?

The northwest United States has an abundance of forest residuals – underbrush and slash– left over from harvesting and forest restoration treatments, as well as mill and urban wood waste. All of these feedstocks are forms of woody biomass. This abundance of woody biomass creates considerable potential for wood-based bioenergy development in the region, particularly […]

Biofuels Firm Considers Buying Tolko Site In B.C.

When the Tolko Industries mill in Merritt shut down in December, Mike Heron took a long look at the community that had just lost more than 200 jobs and saw an opportunity. “It happened when I came here around Christmastime. I had a chance to learn about Tolko unfortunately having to close it’s doors, at […]

Renewable Energy Industries Employ 8 Million+

From: Wood Bioenergy Editors More than 8 million are employed in renewable energy industries worldwide, and that number rises to 9.8 million if large-scale hydropower projects are included, according to a recent report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Renewable Energy and Jobs – Annual Review 2017. Officials with IRENA note the figures show […]

Fifth Wood Bioenergy Conference & Expo Will Be Held April 11-12, 2018

From: Wood Bioenergy Editors Organizers have announced that the fifth Wood Bioenergy Conference & Expo will be held Wednesday-Thursday, April 11-12, 2018, and once again in the Grand Ballroom North of the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Wood Bioenergy Conference & Expo again immediately precedes the Panel & Engineered Lumber International […]

DOE Announces Funding For Biofuels, Bioproducts, Biopower Projects

Just before 2016 came to a close, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the selection of six projects for up to $12.9 million in federal funding. The funding opportunity announcement (FOA) and initiative is titled “Project Definition for Pilot- and Demonstration-Scale Manufacturing of Biofuels, Bioproducts, and Biopower,” and it represents new investment in a […]

WSU Tri-Cities Grant Will Test Biojet Fuel Market Potential

Researchers at Washington State University Tri-Cities were awarded a $50,000 grant to explore the market potential of their biojet fuel research. The team has demonstrated a new, water-based process for deconstructing and recovering a waste product from biomass and converting it into jet fuel-range hydrocarbons. It could be certified as jet fuel in the future. […]

Successful Wood-Based Biofuel Test In Europe

International dredging company Boskalis and Dutch sustainable fuel company GoodFuels Marine have extensively tested UPM BioVerno wood-based renewable diesel on a vessel working on the Dutch Marker Wadden nature restoration project in the middle of the Markermeer lake. The fuel supplied by Finnish UPM Biofuels is the first ever biofuel derived from wood residue used […]
