Weekly News Roundup

Ok, I did promise to post another news roundup yesterday but unfortunately I had to scramble to get back into the "work" mode after a week of vacation bliss. This week is also my deadline for my China alternative energy article (coming out on September 21) as well as preparing for an alternative transportation fuel article that will come out in ICIS Chemical Business' October 5 automotive feature. Stay tune for those!

But the blog still have this week's news roundup...

Biomass ammonia coming soon
SynGest has chosen The Weitz Company to provide engineering, procurement and construction services (EPC) for its first plant to manufacture BioAmmonia (anhydrous ammonia) fuel and fertilizer from corn cob biomass near Menlo, Iowa.

Corn pellets for fuel
Next Step Biofuels has started commercial-scale production of PowerPellets™
from corn stover at Loup Valley Alfalfa’s pelleting facilities in Burwell, Neb. Next Step plans to sell corn stover PowerPellets to coal-fired power plants and
cellulosic bio-refineries worldwide.
