Daystar is conducting feasibility work for CHyP biofuels facilities
In the US
In the US Midwestern states, where there is an abundance agricultural crop residues such as wheat straw and corn stover as well as perennial grasses such as crab grass and switch grass as feedstocks, Daystar is in the process of establishing feedstock agreements. In the Pacific Northwest, Daystar is targeting feedstock supply agreements with existing sawmills and forest products producers to utilize surplus mill residue biomass (sawdust, wood shavings, bark) and/or roadside residue.
Our facilities will require approximately 2.5 acres of land to accommodate feedstock handling, a 50,000 square foot building, and product storage and transportation facilities. Facilities could potentially be located in existing buildings at an existing site or a new building will be constructed. Early stage development activities include site selection and purchase or leasing, securing a feedstock supply agreement, securing a fuel off-take agreement, securing an off-take agreement for Biochar, completion of all appropriate permitting requirements, feedstock characterization and production volume calculations, certification of fuel specifications by appropriate authority, site civil engineering, securing electrical power supply for the facility, facility design and engineering, construction cost estimating and contracting (EPC), project financing. Daystar will work closely with government agencies to justify support for the first plant through grants and loan guarantees. A successful project will stimulate private investment and accelerate replication of the project model elsewhere in the US.
Agricultural biomass is the most abundant resource for creating clean energy for the production of bio-based fuels, hydrogen, electricity and chemicals. Alberta has an abundant supply of cellulosic biomass from forest product residues and cereal crop waste. Consequently, Alberta is a very advantageous location to introduce our technology provider's CHyP technology. The Province also has very progressive programs to reduce CO2 emissions through support of innovative renewable energy technologies.
If you have a site that can provide 150 dtpd of biomass please contact us.
