  5. Corn processing coproducts from ethanol production

    Rausch, Kent D.; Belyea, Ronald L.; Singh, Vijay; Tumbleson, M.E.
    Increase in demand for ethanol as a fuel additive has resulted in growth in ethanol production. Ethanol is produced from corn by either wet milling or dry grind processing. In wet milling, the corn kernel is fractionated into different components, resulting in several coproducts. Wet mill plants are capital intensive because of equipment requirements and typically are corporate owned. In dry grind processing, the corn kernel is not fractionated and only one coproduct, distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS), is generated. Dry grind plants require less equipment and capital than wet mills. They typically are producer owned and add direct benefits to rural economies. Most of the...

  6. Assessment of two alternative switchgrass harvest and transport methods

    Popp, Michael P.; Hogan, Robert J., Jr.
    As the search for renewable energy sources from agriculture intensifies, many agricultural producers are contemplating production of a native perennial grass species, switchgrass (Panicum Vigratum, L.). While much information on various aspects of switchgrass production exists, this paper discusses implications of two alternative harvesting and transportation methods that may be suitable for Arkansas conditions. Results suggested that module building compared to the simpler round baling technology may be a promising alternative.

  7. Using stated preferences to estimate the environmental benefits of using biodiesel fuel in diesel engines

    Jeanty, Pierre Wilner; Hitzhusen, Frederick J.
    Using biodiesel fuel to reduce emissions from diesel engines is an area of increasing interest. Many environmental benefits associated with biodiesel are not traded in markets and their estimation requires economic valuation methods applied to non-market goods and services. This paper presents the results of a contingent valuation survey conducted in 2006 in two Ohio regions to estimate willingness to pay for air pollution reduction arising from using biodiesel fuel in diesel engines. The double bounded parametric formulation was used to estimate mean WTP ranging from $157 to $457. These results yield estimated aggregate benefits ranging from $123 to $429 million and can be used as a...

  8. Recent developments and prospects for the production of biofuels in the EU: Can they really be "Part of Solution"?

    Jacquet, Florence; Bamiere, Laure; Bureau, Jean-Christophe; Guinde, Loic; Guyomard, Herve; Treguer, David
    The European Union has launched an ambitious policy aiming at increasing the use of biofuels in land transport “with a view to contributing to objectives such as meeting climate change commitments, environmentally friendly security of supply and promoting renewable energy sources”. Another motivation, at least for some member states, is that the development of biofuels is expected to provide larger outlets for domestic farm products and new employment opportunities in rural areas and make future adjustments of the Common agricultural policy easier. The EU policy of support to energy crops, tax exemption for biofuels and mandatory incorporation targets in some member states, has resulted in a significant...
