Abstract
Conventional biomass comminution machines like chippers, grinders, and hammer mills consume too much energy and produce feedstocks with wide size distributions and poor flow characteristics. Next generation biorefineries will require low-cost feedstocks with engineered properties optimized for particular conversion processes.We will optimize our new high quality, low cost, granulated densified biomass feedstock for candidate biochemical and thermochemical conversion systems. We will develop modular comminution units and subsystems
