Feedstocks 2020? There are many grasses, woody materials, and agricultural wastes that are emerging as feedstocks for transportation fuels. Grasses like miscanthus and switchgrass, agricultural wastes like wheat straw, rice straw, and corn stover, and lumber wastes that are currently being thrown away, burned or put into our landfills, are now becoming reused as the “circular economy” continues to grow. Converting these feedstocks, not only eliminates any “food v. fuel” arguments associated with earlier feedstocks, but also best utilized every part of the plants – providing new income streams for farmers and cheaper feedstocks for transportation. Research is also showing is that things like miscanthus produce many times more ethanol per acre than traditional feedstocks, and with much less energy input.
