Studying Woody Biomass For Energy Across The U.S.

Woody biomass includes stems, small branches, treetops, needles, leaves, and sometimes the roots of trees and shrubs. These materials are byproducts of forest management activities such as thinning, but they can also be a valuable source of bioenergy. Five U.S. Forest Service Southern Research Station (SRS) scientists – John Stanturf, Emile Gardiner, Leslie Groom, Dana […]

Full Scale Nanocellulose Production Plant Under Study In California

Full-scale wood-based nanocellulose production at a California site could result if a feasibility study underway by the USDA’s Forest Products Laboratory pans out. The Madison, Wisconsin, research arm of the U.S. Forest Service is working with local government officials in Yreka, California, along with area timber processors, on a project that could help turn small-diameter […]

Herty Announces Launch Of Consortium For Advanced Wood-To-Energy Solutions

The Georgia Southern University Herty Advanced Materials Development Center, Savannah, GA (Herty), U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities (Endowment), and the USDA Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory, Madison, WI (FPL) announced the launch of the Consortium for Advanced Wood-to-Energy Solutions (CAWES). The consortium’s goal is to spearhead development of commercially-viable, advanced wood-to-energy products that can […]

Forest Products Laboratory Joins $5.8 Million Federal Biomass Research

Humboldt State University (HSU), along with 15 regional partners including the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL), has received a $5.88 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to conduct innovative biomass research. The grant is part of the Biomass Research and Development Initiative, a collaborative effort between the Department of Energy and the Department of […]

Wood2Energy Database Provides Latest Information On Biomass Facilities

Just last year, archaeologists found evidence that pre-humans burned wood as long ago as two million years. Since prehistoric times, people have relied on wood for fuel. In recent years, there’s been growing interest in using woody biomass, a renewable energy source, as an alternative to fossil fuel. The Wood2Energy project grew from the need […]

The grant is part of the Biomass Research and Development Initiative, a collaborative effort between the Department of Energy and the Department of Agriculture […]

Forest Products Lab To Open First-Of-Its-Kind Pilot Plant

The Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wis. this week opened a $1.7 million nanocellulose pilot plant that will help support the emerging market for wood-derived renewable materials. A grand-opening ceremony was held at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the laboratory at 1 Gifford Pinchot Drive, with presentations by officials from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and […]

Forest Products Lab Hosts Important Wood-To-Energy Roundtable

Arthur “Butch” Blazer, USDA Deputy Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment, paid a visit to the U.S. Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) in Madison, Wis., recently to convene an important roundtable discussion on wood-to-energy concerns in Wisconsin and the Midwest. Among the participants were wood scientists and technology transfer authorities from FPL and […]
