Exciting Upcoming Issues
I just finished final edits on the March issue of Biomass Power & Thermal and am very excited to release it to you all. Not only that, but the editorial team is working on the upcoming April issue, as well as our Spring 2012 Pellet Mill Magazine.
We have our hands full around here.
April Biomass Power & Thermal will include, if space allows, four staff-written feature articles, most focused on handling and storage. We take a new approach to those terms, however, as we include handling of biogas, as well as the possibilities of using inland waterways to transport feedstock. Britain has a developing plan to do it, and I wonder whether that’s an option in the U.S. It would open huge opportunities for landlocked biomass suppliers to export, or widen their customer bases within the U.S. I can’t wait to read the article.
We’ll also delve into the newest and best available options for traditional storage and transportation, exploring paths to optimized efficiency and revenue.
This April issue will accompany our Spring 2012 Pellet Mill Magazine at our International Biomass Conference & Expo in Denver, Colo., in April. I’m equally excited about the content we’re preparing for Pellet Mill Magazine. Innovation seems to be the unintentional theme. In feedstock, business models and strategies, as well as equipment designs, the concept appears throughout.
The issue will also feature an explanation of the pine beetle problem in North American forests, a talking point at the Rocky Mountain Forest Restoration & Bioenergy Summit, held in conjunction with the conference.
I could go on about this forever, but long story short, I am incredibly happy with the content we’re working on for both of our magazines. Stay tuned.
