Frontiers in Energy Research Release a Special Issue Addressing Challenges to Efficient Bioenergy Production

Storing chopped, wet corn stover in conditions with reduced oxygen not only reduces microbial loss and risk of fire but also can increase yields during conversion to biofuels.

This finding is one among many in a compendium of new research that explores how grinding, sifting, drying, pelletizing and chemically treating plant material and other forms of biomass before it reaches the biorefinery could help solve big challenges plaguing today’s bioenergy industry.
