Cellulosic Hydrolysis Reactors

Cellulosic materials, such as corn stover, cane, switchgrass, timber waste, municipal solid waste, etc., can be processed into fuels and renewable chemicals. Broadly speaking, there are two main methods: pyrolysis and hydrolysis. The former is relatively independent of feedstock but happens at high temperatures and may have yield losses due to breakdown of the molecules […]

Biomass Energy

The definition of biomass energy?  Biomass energy is a renewable organic materials, such as wood, agricultural crops or wastes, and municipal wastes, especially when used as a source of fuel or energy. Biomass can be burned directly or processed into biofuels such as bio ethanol and methane. Biomass is certainly a renewable feedstock, and it is […]

Biomass Pretreatment Expert

What does a biomass pretreatment expert or consultant do? First, we must understand the process.  Collected biomass requires some type of pretreatment prior to its conversion to fuels or renewable chemicals.   Pretreatment will involve the biomass’ handling and transport, and the actual physical processes like sizing, drying, or chemical processes such as acid washing.   These […]

Biomass Feedstock Expert

What does a biomass feedstock expert or biomass feedstock consultant do?  A Biomass Feedstock Expert is an essential part of biomass project financing: the expert acts as a credible, recognized independent 3rd party to help biomass project developers and capital providers assess the feedstock risk of individual projects. A Biomass Feedstock expert understands how to: […]

Bioenergy Expert

What does a bioenergy expert or bioenergy consultant do? First, let’s define bioenergy.   By definition, bioenergy is the energy extracted from biomass as it is used as a fuel.  So, in a narrow sense, we think of bioenergy as biofuels – fuels derived from biological sources.  In a broader sense, bioenergy includes the biomass, or […]

Biomass Technology Experts

What does a biomass technology expert or consultant do?  First, let’s define “biomass technology”.  There are many specific types of biomass conversion technologies, primarily divided into four major groups.  The first group are thermal conversion technologies.  These technologies use heat to convert biomass materials into energy, and include pyrolysis and torrefaction technologies.  The second group […]

Biofuels Expert

What does a biofuel expert do? Biofuels are a replacement for petroleum-derived fossil fuels.  They are derived from biomass and made via processes that meet lifecycle requirements to meet the definition so reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  There are currently three generations of biofuels,  the first generation is from sugar derived from food crops like corn and includes ethanol and ethanol along with fuels derived from further […]

Biotechnology Evaluation Expert

What does a biochemical, biofuels or biomass technology evaluator do?  A technology evaluator provides an independent opinion about a new technology or application based on years of technical and commercial experience.   It is useful for understanding if the technology is worth commercialization at this stage and the potential the value of intellectual property. What is […]
