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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Joule And Red Rock Biofuels Announce Intent To Merge

Joule, the pioneer of liquid fuels from recycled CO2, and Red Rock Biofuels, a leading developer of renewable jet and diesel fuel bio-refineries, today announced their intent to merge. Red Rock adds a proven technology pathway to Joule’s own Helioculture technology and strengthens Joule’s platform for global supply of carbon neutral fuels. The transaction is […]

Maine Forests Bring Hopes Of Alternative Fuel Revolution

Seven years ago, many in Maine held high hopes for a “marriage of manufacturing and technology” promised by a new owner of the longstanding Old Town mill. That owner, Patriarch Partners, planned — with the help of University of Maine researchers — to put Maine’s forests to work in a new way: by producing cellulosic, […]

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 […]

Unlocking Lignin For Sustainable Biofuel

Turning trees, grass, and other biomass into fuel for automobiles and airplanes is a costly and complex process. Biofuel researchers are working to change that, envisioning a future where cellulosic ethanol, an alcohol derived from plant sugars, is as common and affordable at the gas station as gasoline. The key to making this vision a […]
