Infographic: biomass feedstock and the supply chain

with 2 comments


Genera recently published an infographic overview of different biomass feedstocks and guidelines for choosing the best solution for every biomass project. The infographic highlights key supply chain elements and explores which biomass crops are best suited for an application.

While not comprehensive to all feedstocks, the document gives customers, stakeholders, and policy makers a better understanding of the unique dynamics associated with biomass feedstocks.

Genera says choosing the right feedstock or feedstock portfolio is critical to the success of any project. “In many cases, raw feedstock is 50 percent or more of the total cost of producing renewable biofuels and biochemical. Optimizing a project’s feedstock portfolio has a significant impact on profitability.”

Fracking’s yin and yang

with one comment


By now you probably know my take on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, if you have been reading this blog and my occasional articles on TriplePundit. Briefly put, I don’t see that the advantages of a marginally cleaner carbon-based energy supply outweigh the litany of disastrous impacts—both potential and real—to the environment, the atmosphere, the earth, the water supply and property values.

I don’t think it is even close, but in the interest of fair play I’m presenting this infographic, “Fracking: Economic Boom or Safety Bust?” courtesy of Mike Isaac, who markets content with Kris Dietz, the founder of two marketing agencies, ProspectMX.com & RankPop.com.

It makes for interesting viewing as it attempts to illustrate the advantages of fracking – take a look and add this to the store of information on fracking. (BTW I received no remuneration for this.)

You don’t have to be a weatherman…

Climate change is real, and it’s coming to your neighborhood. This comprehensive and disturbing infographic, “How Climate Change is Destroying the Earth,” comes courtesy of LearnStuff.

According to LearnStuff, “Thanks to extensive research and noticeable changes in weather and storm prevalence, it’s getting harder to turn a blind eye to the reality of climate change. Since the Industrial Age spurred the increasing usage of fossil fuels for energy production, the weather has been warming slowly. In fact, since 1880, the temperature of the earth has increased by 1 degree Celsius.

“Although 72% of media outlets report on global warming with a skeptical air, the overwhelming majority of scientists believe that the extreme weather of the last decade is at least partially caused by global warming.”

So check it out:
