IEA Predicts “Biggest Growth” In Bioenergy Renewables By 2023

The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) current market forecast has predicted that modern bioenergy will have the biggest growth in renewable resources between 2018 and 2023. According to the IEA’s market analysis and forecast report, renewables are to continue increasing over the next 5 years and will be covering 40% of global energy consumption growth. They […]

DOE Awards Purdue University Team $1.8 Million Grant To Solve Blockages

A problem facing biorefinery operations is the flow of biomass into and throughout facilities. Lignocellulosic biomass, often made up of post-harvest agricultural materials such as corn stover and soybean hulls, often accumulates and compacts while moving through augers, forcing shutdowns for maintenance. A team led by Purdue University scientists is to receive a $1.8 million […]

Declining Electricity Prices In The Northeast Hinder Biomass Market

In 2015, New Hampshire set a record for biomass use: 2.6 million tons of low-grade wood was converted to electricity. In 2014, biomass accounted for roughly 22 percent of Maine’s total harvest volume. Depending on local markets, biomass represents between 20-30 percent of the harvest volume in the Northeast, which equates to a significant amount […]

Renewable Biofuel Crop Attractive To Washington Economy

Trees and technology are making the road to renewable resources more promising with each growing season. At the first poplar-for-bioenergy harvest recently in Stanwood, a harvester with a specialized header cut and chipped trees in a single pass. “It’s a much different cropping system for harvesting these trees than a timber harvest,” said Patricia Townsend, […]

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 […]

North American Wood Pellet Exports Reached New Record Of 3.2 Million Tons In 2012

The wood pellet export industry in North America has grown exponentially in a relatively short period of time. The export value has increased from an estimated 40 million dollars in 2004 to almost 400 million dollars in 2012. This fairly new trade development is the result of Europe’s quest to reduce its dependence on fossil […]

Oregon Hospital Heats Up With A Wood Pellet Boiler

With help from the Energy Department’s State Energy Program, an Oregon hospital is saving approximately $100,000 a year after replacing its old, 1950’s-era boilers with a new, energy-efficient biomass system. Blue Mountain District Hospital, in John Day, Oregon, was using two crude oil-fired boilers and one heating oil boiler to provide heat and hot water […]
