What do Sweden, the U.S., Brazil & India All Have in Common?

Recently Rolf Nordstrom had the opportunity to participate in a U.S.-Brazil-India delegation to Sweden on sustainable development.

Minnesota and Sweden Strengthen Bioenergy Collaboration

As part of our ongoing work with the Swedish Energy Agency, GPI organized a series of visits and meetings among Minnesotan’s and a delegation of biogas experts from Sweden.

Betting on Biogas Growth in 2016

On the biogas front, 2015 was a good year, especially when compared to activity in previous years.

Biogas Integration for Cellulosic Ethanol Production

Anaerobic digesters are being co-located at cellulosic ethanol production to recover biogas from waste material and provide a source of process energy for the plant.

Maximizing Biogas Project Value

Given the multiple biogas project configurations and the need to bundle various economic benefits to make projects pencil out, squeezing the most value out of projects all along the supply and production chain is critical.

Public Policy Helps, Hinders Projects

Project investors and developers in Minnesota and around the country will continue to utilize state and federal programs and other public policies to put project pieces together to build new technology and bring low-carbon cellulosic fuels to market.

2015 Minnesota Legislative Session Recap: Bioeconomy Edition

A new financing program for advanced biofuels, renewable chemicals and biomass thermal is now law. Get the final details on the program now that the legislature has adjourned.

Public-Private Partnerships Enable Project Success

Biobased projects, including biogas, need public-private partnerships to bring the potential resource to scale.

Good Policy Should Float all Bio-Boats

Minnesota has many of the essential ingredients for a strong bioeconomy.

Data and Tools to Better Evaluate Biogas Potential

Variations among biogas projects make it difficult to adequately assess resource potential.

Biogas Racks up Cellulosic RINs

Record volumes of cellulosic fuel have been reported during August and September.

Cellulosic Fuel Production Surges in August, But Not From Ethanol

August 2014 was a good month for cellulosic fuel production in the US, maybe just not from the the source you would expect.

A Visionary Model for Biogas Projects

Biogas advocates and project developers have been abuzz since EPA expanded eligible biogas transportation fuel pathways to generate cellulosic RINs.

Renewable Fuel Standard rules give boost to biogas

New renewable fuel program rules from EPA are expected to lead to a major scale-up of biogas transportation fuel projects.

International cooperation yields exchange of project models

Sweden is a world leader in bioenergy development. There is tremendous opportunity to develop Minnesota biomass.

Sweden and Minnesota Move Forward on Bioenergy Cooperation

During a recent delegation ideas and information were exchanged on waste management and energy generation.

Taking Recycling Efforts to the Next Level

As cities consider what to do with organic waste, they should consider the value of anaerobic digestion (AD).

Amanda Bilek Recognized by Biomass Magazine as a 'Biogas Bolsterer'

GPI congratulates our own Amanda Bilek for being recognized as a 'Biogas Bolsterer' by Biomass Magazine

Biogas Projects Can Help Establish Energy Crop Supply

Bioenergy projects present many opportunities for establishing perennial feedstocks. However, biogas projects have not typically been associated with grassland establishment, but a recent discussion at a grassland conference makes a strong case for why that should change.

Biogas a Combined Heat and Power Opportunity

There is renewed interest in deploying combined heat and power (CHP) technology to improve the efficiency of the energy generation and delivery system. Biogas systems have been early adopters of CHP and are well positioned to benefit from an increased focus on CHP implementation.

Infrastructure Critical to Biogas as Transportation Fuel

New infrastructure is needed to enable biogas as a vehicle fuel. Fortunately, the infrastructure needed for biogas is supported by the build out occurring for compressed natural gas (CNG).

Biogas as Transportation Fuel: A Strong Start

The use of biogas as a transportation is moving from vision to reality all across the US. Even though there are practical project examples, there is a still a large amount of untapped potential.

Biogas Contributes to a Diverse Renewable Fuel Mix

Biogas energy systems can also be a source of transportation fuel in compressed natural gas vehicles. This column from Biomass Magazine provides examples of projects in the US already using biogas to fuel large fleet vehicles.

Bright Future for Biogas Energy Systems

Amanda Bilek's first column for Biomass Magazine describes the incredible potential for the deployment of biogas energy systems.

Untapped Potential - Swine Manure as a Biogas Feedstock

Although the U.S. has an enormous amount of untapped potential for biogas from organic waste streams, not enough is understood about the barriers and opportunities for using swine manure as an anaerobic digestion feedstock. Research completed by GPI and the Energy Center of Wisconsin aims to lay a foundation for understanding the barriers and opportunities.
