Wood Energy: Does It Get Any Cleaner?

Wood energy, an efficient and affordable technology, is one of the most environmentally friendly energy sources at our disposal. It is renewable and sustainable, but it’s locally sourced and contributes to the heating and cooling sector. Renewable energy choices are best made when playing to the strengths of different regions. Michigan has an abundance of […]

$3 Million DOE Grant Supports SUNY Bioenergy Developments

The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded up to $3 million to the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) to develop and demonstrate ways to reduce the cost of delivering woody bioenergy feedstocks to biorefineries. Specifically, the grant will be used to lower the delivered cost of short-rotation woody crops; rapidly, accurately, and […]

DOE Awards $7 Million To Two Bioenergy Feedstock Logistics Projects

The U.S. Department of Energy has announced up to $7 million for two projects aimed at developing and demonstrating ways to reduce the cost of delivering bioenergy feedstocks to biorefineries. Examples of bioenergy feedstocks include corn stover, switchgrass, and woody biomass. By investing in this type of research, development, and demonstration, the Energy Department is […]

EPA Reconsidering Forest Biomass As An Energy Source

The Environmental Protection Agency signaled Wednesday that it may be more open to considering timber byproducts and other biomass as an energy source that fits within the Obama administration’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions.

Attendees celebrated four U.S. advanced cellulosic biofuel refineries that are close to commercial production, several public-private partnerships that have spurred research and development of biofuels, and young scientists who are the […]

Northwest Wood-To-Biofuel Conference To Be Held In Washington

The Northwest Wood-Based Biofuels + Co Products Conference intends to unite the emerging wood-to-biofuel industry in the Pacific Northwest. Set for April 28-30, 2014, at the Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Avenue in Seattle, this conference comes two years after the USDA invested $80 million to facilitate the development of a sustainable wood to biofuels […]

Herty Advanced Materials Development Center Announces New Mobile Pellet Mill

The Herty Advanced Materials Development Center today announced the addition of a new mobile pellet development unit (MPDU), a versatile pellet system designed for rapid screening of feedstocks and processing conditions. As a research tool the MPDU is designed to be more versatile and cost-effective than full-scale systems. It can be rapidly reconfigured to assess […]
