On-Farm Study Researches Novozymes Fermentation Spent Residuals
The Novozymes enzyme-manufacturing facility in Blair, Nebraska, produces enzymes through aerobic fermentation of non-pathogenic and non-toxigenic microorganisms. The process generates a solid byproduct consisting of lime-stabilized spent microbial biomass.

This publication discusses the research to evaluate the potential agricultural use of the byproduct.

Estimated Cost of Establishment and Production of Miscanthus in Iowa
Giant Miscanthus, a non-invasive biomass that grows well in the Midwest, is expected to play a significant role to reach the cellulosic biofuel mandate. It can adapt to marginal land, which implies its potential. This report presents production cost estimates for Miscanthus and an example case for Miscanthus production, detailing inputs required and procedures involved in establishment, yearly operation, and harvest.
