Biorefineries require large biomass bulk storage areas

24/7, 365 d/yr Biomass StorageThe generic GreenEnergyParkTM design shows a 8400m2 storage area for a 24/7, 365 days per year feedstock supply. Over 90% of global furfural is made from corncobs and bagasse. The handling (transportation and storage) of both feedstock is well understood and documented. Technologies and methodologies have been used for decades (also in the pulp and paper industry).
