From the forest to the sea, a NIU professor is researching the possibility of building the world's first biomass pipeline, an idea with revolutionary potential for the future of biomass transportation. Throughout the years, transportation of large and consistent feedstock has been a limiting factor to biomass’ ability to replace fossil fuels. Mahdi Vaezi, associate professor at Northern Illinois University, has an innovative solution to this problem: hydro-transport of biomass, such as wood chips, wheat straw and sawdust, via pipeline. Now, he and his team are researching what it would take to make the world’s first biomass pipeline a reality.

Representatives of the RFA, Growth Energy and ACE on June 13 discussed the future of the U.S. ethanol industry during a general session panel at the 39th annual International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo.

A Colorado wood product company has implemented heating pellet production to make use of its process waste. Southwest Colorado is home to a new pellet facility. In the small mountain town of Mancos, which is dubbed the “Gateway to Mesa Verde” due to its proximity to the national park, construction of the plant was ultimately prompted by COVID-19.

Carbon intensity scores determine, in part, the value producers get for each gallon of ethanol they produce. Today's CI calculations don't factor in low-carbon farming practices, but industry leaders like Brian Jennings are determined to change that.

Ethanol producers share their experiences with Veolia Water Technologies & Solutions, which offers value-added treatment products and services to address some of the most challenging reliability and sustainability issues biorefineries face.
