September 27 Webinar Highlights the Economics Of Transportable Biomass Conversion Facilities

Transportable biomass conversion facilities and the economics of using forest harvest residues to produce biochar, briquettes, and torrefied wood is the topic of a September 27 webinar hosted by the Waste to Wisdom research project.

To characterize the potential economic viability of transportable biomass conversion facilities for producing biochar, briquettes, and torrefied wood, biomass supply chains were modeled and optimized for five sub-regions within the Pacific Northwest. This webinar presents and discusses the results of the sub-regional analysis of transportable, near-forest biomass conversion facilities. Presenters will discuss the impacts of regional feedstock composition and availability, transportation costs, facility movement, and biomass conversion technology upon the supply chain cost structure. They will also address the importance of biomass moisture management on cost control, the economics of scale for transportable plants, and sensitivity of results to market pricing, conversion facility design, product yield assumptions, access, and costs of electrical grid energy and State transportation regulations.

Participants who can benefit from the webinar include forestland managers, logging and biomass contractors, biomass conversion tech firms, biomass marketing specialists, government agencies that regulate air quality, academics interested in utilization of biomass, and more.

The webinar will be held Wednesday, September 27 at 10:00 a.m. (PT) and features analysis from researchers involved in the multi-year Waste to Wisdom research projects. Seats are limited and registrants are already reserving spots. See the webinar page for more information and a registration link.

About Waste to Wisdom

Waste to Wisdom is a $5.88 million project in its final year that seeks to better utilize forest residues for the production of bioenergy and bio-based products. The project is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy under the Biomass Research and Development Initiative program, Award Number DE-EE0006297, and is led by Humboldt State University with support from 15 regional partners.
