Mobile Plant Produces Liquid Fuel From Waste Wood

Twelve research groups from seven countries have developed a sustainable method for producing biofuel from wood waste. The process takes place in a mobile unit that has the potential to decentralize fuel production. Wood waste and tree bark are ideal raw materials as they don’t need to be specially cultivated and don’t compete with food […]

Ridgeland Pellet Company Launches South Carolina Manufacturing Plant

Ridgeland Pellet Company plans to launch new manufacturing operations in Ridgeland, South Carolina. The company’s $8.1 million investment is projected to create 27 new jobs over the next five years in Jasper County. A manufacturer of wood pellets used in home heating fuel, alternative industrial energy and equine bedding, Ridgeland Pellet Company will purchase an […]

Red Rock Biofuels Facility Breaks Ground In Oregon

Remember in the iconic “Back To The Future” films when Doc Brown placed garbage in the time machine’s engine to fuel it? From science-fiction to science-fact, a similar process will soon become reality fueling aircraft nationwide once the Red Rock Biofuels renewable energy plant is built. On Wednesday, members of Red Rock Biofuels, political dignitaries, […]

U.S. Wood Pellet Industry Increases Production By 5.4 Percent

Over the course of the first quarter, a total of 1.727m t pellets were produced by pellet plants in the USA. This represents a 5.4% increase vis à vis the comparative period of the preceding year. According to figures of the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) at the U.S. Department of Energy, production of pellets […]

Wood Bioenergy Magazine Partners With Argus Biomass

Wood Bioenergy magazine announced that it has formed an alliance with Argus Media Ltd. regarding the Argus Biomass event to be held April 25-27 at The Landmark in London, UK. Argus Biomass will feature three days of presentations on all aspects of the international biomass industry, including wood pellets, biomass power, raw materials, related technologies […]

Study: Using Wood For Building And Energy Helps Environment

Wood has a largely favorable environmental effect. A study of the National Research Programme “Resource Wood” recommends using wood more widely as a source of energy and as a building material. The study examined the overall environmental impact of wood in Switzerland, analyzing the value chain from cutting trees to recycling wood or burning it, […]

Senate Leans Toward Labeling Biomass Power Plants As Carbon Neutral

Pushback rises on burning wood fiber in electric generating plants, as scientists and environmentalists question whether it is, indeed, carbon neutral. A U.S. Senate committee is leaning toward labeling wood-fired power plants as carbon neutral. Panel manufacturers have complained in the past such actions would raise the cost of raw materials for wood products companies. […]

Woody Biomass Fuels Sales For MDF Fiber Suppliers

Demand for woody biomass for energy production is on the rise in developed nations, as publicly regulated utilities around the world shift from fossil and nuclear power to greener fuels. Global industrial wood pellet demand is expected to more than double by 2020 to about 29 million metric tons from about 13 million tons in […]

Research Points To Bright Future For Woody Biomass

A potential revolution is unfolding on out-of-the-way logging roads. Foresters and researchers are innovating unique ways to make use of forest residues—low quality trees, tree tops, limbs, and chunks that formerly would have been left in slash piles and burned, or worse, left to rot. Last year, HSU and 15 regional partners began the Waste […]

Modular Biobattery Plant Turns A Wide Range Of Biomass Into Energy

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Energy and Safety Technology have developed a “biobattery” in the form of a highly efficient biogas plant that can turn raw materials like straw, scrap wood and sludge into a variety of useful energy sources including electricity, purified gas and engine oil. The new plant design, currently being […]
