Biofuels: Their Future Is Now?

The title of this post (without the question mark) was the title of September’s monthly American Bar Association renewable energy teleconference. For those who are interested, I recommend listening into these inexpensive monthly sessions to remain current on renewable energy developments.

  • Of particular interest in this past week’s biofuels conference was a presentation by Reid Detchon of the Energy Future Coalition. His presentation was one of the more cogent and coherent cases I’ve seen in promoting the need for an alternative to oil for economic, environmental and geopolitical purposes, and why biomass could/should be a contributor to the solution.

  • I had never heard before of the Energy Future Coalition, so I did a little more digging. In looking at their web site — their mission, their participants — this would appear to be an organization well worth watching…and supporting.

Early 1990 experiences perfected over time make heating home an affordable, safe, healthy, comfortable, exercise intensive option. Not for the lazy, corn stoves are for hardy survivors.Clinton Meyer,The ignition temperature varies with pressure, available oxygen, size of fuel particle, moisture content, catalyst, etc. Without further knowledge of your project or the intented use perhaps the following information will be useful.At ambient pressure of 14.696 psia the minimum explosible concentration of dried biosolids from Hyperion with 0% moisture is 150 – 320 gm/m(3). Corn starch and coal dust ignite at approximately 50 gm/m(3). The minimum ignition temperature for Hyperion dried biosolids is 355 degrees C or 671 deg F and the minimum oxygen concentration for combustion of a dust cloud varies from 15 to 16% by volume.Corn content is 34% Hydrogen producing a blue flame and over 60% carbon producing a yellow flame. Correct fuel air mixture produces a virtually invisible flame. Corn combustion is chemically described as Cn + H 2n+2Welcome to amaizablaze corn stoves.
