DOE Awards $21 Million to Five Projects for Biomass Processing

"DOE announced on August 31 that it will award up to $21 million to five projects for handling and delivering high-tonnage biomass feedstocks to producers of cellulosic biofuels. The awards were selected as the best projects to stimulate the design and demonstration of a comprehensive system to handle the harvesting, collection, preprocessing, transport, and storage of sufficient volumes of sustainably produced feedstocks. Potential biomass feedstocks include agricultural residues, energy crops (switchgrass, miscanthus, sugarcane, sorghum, poplar, and willow), forest resources (forest thinnings, wood chips, wood wastes, and small diameter trees), and urban wood wastes. The awards are part of DOE's ongoing efforts to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil, spur the creation of the domestic bio-industry, and provide new jobs in rural areas of the country."
