Summaries of the information presented at the New World Biomass conference:
Small Scale Energy and Fuel Production for Farmers
Grassroots biofuels production supports a tremendous opportunity for self-sustaining practices by farmers and communities merging cooperative interests for production networks, rural economic development, and community well-being. Access to processing basic energy requirements frees fundamental providers from political and economic restraints revolving around energy availability. Well designed, cost effective biofuels facilities are available to address looming energy deficits. Learn how here.
Alternate Energy Crop Efficiencies for On-Farm Funding
Expand your vision for practical energy crop potential. Serious studies qualify for on-farm grants in regional locations. Learn to address essential elements of on-farm grant application as applied to your potential. Develop a reasonable plan combined with additional benefits such as remediation in a cattail/ ethanol and clean-water project. With or without funding support, a plan is important to foresight.
How to Implement a Community Feasibility Study and Data Collection Basics
Small commercial biofuels systems target farmer and community needs. Feasibility establishes production parameters, growth projections, and financial support information. Realistic planning considers feedstock availability, production capabilities, automation benefits, distribution, and value-added co-products. Data collection addresses permitting, compliance, safety, metering verification, and cost control’s monitoring. Learn the basics for personal business plan development assuring success for establishing your biofuels production plant.
