Dr. Kukkonen's presentation entitled "Biorefinery Feedstock and Fuel for Bioenergy" is summarized below.

  • Giant King Grass is the lowest cost cellulosic feedstock for a biorefinery
  • Co-location of biorefinery with Giant King Grass plantation greatly simplifies logistics
    • Sugar-based biorefineries are co-locating in Brazil to reduce costs

Giant King Grass can also be burned in a power plant to generate electricity; for energy pellets to be co-fired in coal burning power plants; and to produce biogas through anaerobic digestion.
