Switchgrass to Biomass

2002-04-02 [SolarAccess.com] Switchgrass may soon be used to create energy in Illinois and Oklahoma. A new project was approved by local Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman who made the announcement during a trip to Chicago last week while meeting with farmers and touring the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. As part of a project called “Converting Illinois CRP Grass Biomass Into Energy,” switchgrass will be harvested from a CRP project located in the Illinois River watershed near Havana, Illinois. Biomass from the switchgrass will then be palletized and used to co-fire traditional coal energy sources.
