EPA Letter To Congress Promotes Biomass As Carbon-Neutral Solution

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) acting administrator Andrew Wheeler sent a letter to the House and Senate Committee on Appropriations, detailing the steps taken to ensure consistent federal policy on forest biomass energy and promote clear policies that encourage the treatment of forest biomass as a carbon-neutral renewable energy solution. The letter was written alongside […]

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 […]

UK Lands $1.6 Million Grant For Rural Biomass Power Generation Partnership

The University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) has received a $1.6 million U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grant to develop an innovative partnership in Hazard, Kentucky, that could serve as a model for future energy projects in rural Eastern Kentucky communities. The project, which is titled Gasification Combined Heat and Power from […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

From Roadmap To Biomass Study, Maine Forest Industry Forges Ahead

Sen. Susan Collins, Sen. Angus King and Rep. Bruce Poliquin are continuing their efforts to seek federal assistance to help Maine deal with the loss of jobs and markets in the forest industry. In response to the congressional delegation’s request for assistance and a preliminary tour of Maine in March, Secretary Penny Pritzker of the […]

Waste To Wisdom Webinar To Highlight Benefits Of Utilizing Forest Residues

A December 7 webinar – the final in a series of three for fall 2015 – will present in-depth information on the $5.88 million Waste to Wisdom project and its efforts to better utilize forest residues for the production of bioenergy and bio-based products. Forest residues, including small-diameter trees, tops, and limbs, produced during thinning […]
