Biorefinery Feedstock Production on Conservation Reserve Program Land
AbstractTechnology that would enable use of lignocellulosic biomass for biorefinery feedstock is under development. The 2002 Farm Bill permitted managed harvesting of biomass from Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) land. This study was conducted to determine the cost to procure, harvest, store, and transport to a biorefinery a flow of lignocellulosic biomass feedstock produced on CRP grasslands in the southern Great Plains and to determine how policies that restrict harvest frequency and days influence cost. Policies that restrict harvest days per year and the frequency of harvest would increase the cost to deliver biomass feedstock. Copyright 2007, Oxford University Press.
