Genera Energy, University of Tennessee Complete $5 Million Biofuels Grant
Date:11/21/2013

Vonore, Tenn. (PRWEB) November 21, 2013

In 2009, The U.S. Department of Energy awarded nearly $5 million to Genera Energy Inc., a recognized innovator in sustainable biomass feedstock advancements and supply chain improvements in Vonore, Tenn., and the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture to research and develop economical systems for bulk-handling and processing of chopped switchgrass. The goal was to reduce the costs of baling in the field and subsequent bale grinding.

“Through this grant and by collaborating with Genera Energy, we’ve been able to evaluate existing switchgrass supply logistics and to develop ground-breaking systems that offer better and more cost-effective methods for handling, processing, and storing chopped switchgrass,” said Al Womac, Ph.D., professor of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science with UTIA and the project leader.

“The funding began in 2009 and in that time we have been able to create and produce a fully-replicable system that saves money and time and which is logistically superior to traditional baling,” Womac added.

Funds from the grant were used by Genera Energy to add a bulk-format handling and research equipment to its existing Biomass Innovation Park facility, implementing new technology best engineered to supply processed switchgrass within specification at the lowest cost. Genera’s added capabilities are unique in that they allow it to receive, convey, store, reclaim, discharge, and compact bulk-format switchgrass automatically with an effective, integrated system.

Using scientific data collected during the research phases, UTIA and Genera were able to develop innovative systems that were based on detailed analysis of switchgrass harvest and handling equipment and logistical efficiencies as well as material characteristics such as weight, par
