Abstract

The DOE aims to displace 30% of the 2004 gasoline use (60 billion gal/yr) with biofuels by 2030 as outlined in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which will require 700 million ton of biomass to be sustainably delivered to biorefineries annually. Lignocellulosic biomass will make an important contribution towards meeting DOE's ethanol production goals. A discussion on sustainable biomass supply systems covers factors affecting the feasibility of the biofuels industry; cost issues; tools for identifying economical, sustainable feedstocks; sustainable agriculture; experience with ethanol production and how it distorts agricultural markets; development of a uniform-format feedstock supply system consisting of modularized harvesting and preprocessing systems adapted to the diversity of feedstocks; promoting diversity in cropping systems; and preventing the stranding of biomass resources. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2009 AIChE Spring National Meeting and 5th Global Congress on Process Safety (Tampa, FL 4/26-30/2009).
