From Illinois, a study out after Christmas from the Energy Biosciences Institute at the University of Illinois looked at 21 species of short-rotation woody biomass, planted in 2010 and harvested and measured in 2011 and 2012. Of the 21, black locust, northern catalpa, flameleaf sumac, silver maple and sycamore proved to be the best short-rotation biomass […]

On Friday April 18, 2014, American Process shipped its second commercial ethanol cargo and sold the first cellulosic ethanol RINs from its Alpena Biorefinery. These are the first cellulosic ethanol RINs generated since the beginning of 2013. These are also the first ever commercial cellulosic ethanol RINS generated from woody biomass in in the US. […]
In Illinois, a study from the Energy Biosciences Institute at the University of Illinois looked at 21 species of short-rotation woody biomass, planted in 2010 and harvested and measured in 2011 and 2012. Of the 21, black locust, northern catalpa, flameleaf sumac, silver maple and sycamore proved to be the best short-rotation biomass crops for […]
In North Carolina, the Biofuels Center of North Carolina has completed its statewide woody biomass assessment—the first report of its kind. The Center coordinated with Raleigh-based Gelbert, Fullbright & Randolph (GFR) Forestry Consultants and the state’s seven economic development regions in 2011 to undertake the now-complete, three-part analysis of the state’s wood resources as foundation […]

In Finland, Walki has developed a paper-based, waterproof cover that can be chipped and burned together with logging residue. The cover itself is a four-meter wide laminate, mainly produced from renewable fibrous materials. It shelters the top of a log pile, where logs are dried to improve energy content, but leaves the sides open, allowing […]
In Washington state, the state House of Representatives has approved a request by the Washington Department of Natural Resources to test forest biomass as a feedstock for renewable jetfuel. The proposal now moves on to the state’s Senate. More on the story.
In Illinois, John Deere has launched woodybiomass,com, a site where “site visitors can influence friends, family, co-workers or their local legislators about the benefits of woody biomass by just a few clicks through the “Making It a Reality” tab”. Via the tab, visitors can email the site link, or send messages to local legislators in […]
In Florida, the state government released its long-awaited “Woody Biomass Economic Study,” an economic impact analysis on the effects of granting financial incentives to energy producers who use woody biomass as fuel, including an analysis of effects on wood supply and prices and impacts on current markets and forest sustainability. The study primarily looked at […]
Southeastern Partnership for Integrated Biomass Supply Systems to demonstrate tractor-trailer scale mobile biomass gasifier
In Tennessee, the Southeastern Partnership for Integrated Biomass Supply Systems (IBSS) will take to the road to show off the research progress of the regional partnership, which is focused on biofuels production centered in the Southeast utilizing fast growing, short rotation woody crops (SRWC). Coordinated by the University of Tennessee Center for Renewable Carbon, and […]
