The Latest in next-wave biofuels feedstock reports: Sorghum

June 8, 2014 |

Just this week appeared a hot new study from Texas A&M AgriLife, where researchers concluded that “Bioenergy sorghum may offer more than another energy supply; it may offer a “sink” for greenhouse gases.”

How’s that again?

Researchers in the Texas A&M University soil and crop sciences department have been measuring greenhouse gases from biofuel production scenarios to help quantify the carbon footprint of a bioenergy cropping system and evaluate compliance with federally mandated reduction goals.

The study, “Impacts of Biomass Sorghum Feedstock Production on Carbon Sequestration and Greenhouse Gas Emissions,” was funded by the AgriLife Research Cropping Systems bioenergy program and a U.S. Department of Agriculture-National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant.

The report is here.
