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 […]

$3 Million DOE Grant Supports SUNY Bioenergy Developments

The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded up to $3 million to the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) to develop and demonstrate ways to reduce the cost of delivering woody bioenergy feedstocks to biorefineries. Specifically, the grant will be used to lower the delivered cost of short-rotation woody crops; rapidly, accurately, and […]

DOE Awards $7 Million To Two Bioenergy Feedstock Logistics Projects

The U.S. Department of Energy has announced up to $7 million for two projects aimed at developing and demonstrating ways to reduce the cost of delivering bioenergy feedstocks to biorefineries. Examples of bioenergy feedstocks include corn stover, switchgrass, and woody biomass. By investing in this type of research, development, and demonstration, the Energy Department is […]

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 […]

Virginia Tech Scientists Develop Tree Biomass Crop To Grow On Marginal Lands

Two Virginia Tech researchers have received a $1.4 million grant to investigate the genetic regulatory networks that will allow an important bioenergy crop to be bred so it will grow in less than ideal soils and climate. Populus, a genus of fast-growing trees commonly known as cottonwoods and aspens, is being grown for bioenergy because […]

University Of Delaware Awarded $12 Million Grant To Develop Biomass Fuels

Delaware’s congressional delegation Monday announced a $12 million federal grant for energy research at University of Delaware in Newark. The grant from the U.S. Department of Energy will go to UD’s Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation, intended to speed scientific breakthroughs for the 21st century energy economy, Sen. Tom Carper, Sen. Chris Coons and Rep. […]

Purdue University Awarded $12 Million DOE Grant For Biomass Fuels Research

A research center at Purdue University’s Discovery Park has been awarded a $12 million, four-year grant as part of a $100 million U.S. Department of Energy initiative to accelerate scientific breakthroughs needed to build the 21st century energy economy. The Purdue-led Center for Direct Catalytic Conversion of Biomass to Biofuels (C3Bio) will use the additional […]

Forest Products Laboratory To Play Key Role In Innovative Biomass Research

Humboldt State University (HSU), along with 15 regional partners including the Forest Products Laboratory, 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 Agriculture […]
