Bioenergy Plantations: an Integral Part in the Sustainability of the Biomass Supply Chain
With the commitment of the University of Missouri to reduce their consumption of fossil fuels for energy production by 25%, a new chapter in bio‐energy production is about to be written. Mizzou’s dedication places our university in an elite company of institutions of higher learning that are forging the way to reduce energy dependence and find renewable and sustainable methods for addressing energy needs. This project will lay the groundwork for how to establish, maintain and understand the economic feasibility of bio‐energy plantations that will provide woody biomass for Mizzou’s new boiler scheduled to go on‐line in 2012.
