Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is a promising cellulosic biomass feedstock for biorefi neries and biofuel production. This paper reviews current and future potential technologies for production, harvest, storage, and transportation of switchgrass. Our analysis indicates that for a yield of 10 Mg ha –1 , the current cost of producing switch-grass (after(More)

Wood chips, torrefied wood chips, ground switchgrass, and wood pellets were tested for off-gas emissions during storage. Storage canisters with gas-collection ports were used to conduct experiments at room temperature of 20 ° C and in a laboratory oven set at 40 °C. Commercially-produced wood pellets yielded the highest carbon monoxide (CO) emissions at(More)
Biomass is a renewable feedstock for production of biofuels, bioproducts and biopower. Securing and maintaining a reliable year-round supply of biomass that meets quality specifications at a reasonable cost is a significant barrier for conversion facilities. Simulation tools to evaluate equipment design and operational parameters aid in identifying and(More)
