    Encouraging research with switchgrass for cellulosic ethanol production! 

    This is good news for biorefiners, because it suggests that they can use the same biomass hydrolyzing enzymes to break down xylans in all switchgrass biomass, no matter when the crop is harvested

    Exciting story in newsletter of Agricultural Adaptation Council

    AAC Quote:
    In collaboration with the Ontario Biomass Producer's Co-op, Switch Energy Corp. is setting up a complete processing line that takes scrap plastic collected from farms and processes the material into forms where it can be combined with biofibre and/or bio-based resins for compounding. Because of the agricultural source of the material, it is frequently contaminated with dirt and straw and therefore needs to be thoroughly washed, cleaned and dried before it can be flaked and ground to various levels of coarseness in powdered form. Once the line is installed and in operation, commercial scale samples will be provided to potential customers in different markets to support the development and expansion of the biocomposite sector in Ontario.
