ZeaChem locks down poplar supply for commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol
Source : biofuelsdigest.com
ZeaChem announced it has signed a long-term binding term sheet with GreenWood Tree Farm Fund, managed by GreenWood Resources, to supply hybrid poplar woody biomass for its first commercial cellulosic biorefinery. ZeaChem will integrate feedstock from a portion of GTFF's residual fiber with local agricultural residue suppliers to achieve feedstock costs 50% less compared to Brazilian sugar cane and 80% less compared to corn based processes. Through this combination of forest and agricultural residuals, ZeaChem has secured 100% of the feedstock supply for the first commercial biorefinery. Under the agreement, GTFF will be the primary feedstock supplier for ZeaChem's first commercial biorefinery. GTFF will supply cellulosic biomass from its existing poplar plantations to the biorefinery, offering new markets for its wood products. ZeaChem's first commercial biorefinery is expected to have capacity of 25M gallons per year (GPY) and to be located in Boardman, Oregon.
