On June 1, 2015, the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) voted to pass the new Low iLUC Risk Biomass Criteria and Compliance Indicators standard. The standard was approved as an optional module for those undergoing RSB certification, and will be used to show that biomass is produced with low indirect land use change (iLUC), resulting in little impact on food production and biodiversity. It is important to demonstrate how iLUC in order to prove that a biobased alternative to a traditional product is better for the environment than the original product. iLUC takes into account the indirect carbon emissions released due to expansion of croplands for biomass production, in part due to clearance of forest areas.

What Is Zero Liquid Discharge and How Does It Work?
Not every industrial facility that produces wastewater will require zero liquid discharge (ZLD). It is usually looked to as a last resort because it can be a complex process that requires a high initial investment. If a facility is located on a site that has severe water scarcity issues and/or astronomical discharge fees, it might be worthwhile to pursue, but in the instances it’s not mandated (some local and/or federal regulations might require ZLD), careful consideration must be made as to whether or not...
DOE Bioenergy Technologies office to request applications for Biomass Research and Development ...
On January 13, 2017, the DOE Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), together with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), announced the intent to issue a request for applications (RFA) titled “Fiscal Year 17 Biomass Research and Development Initiative (BRDI).” Projects funded through BRDI must address one of the foll owing topic areas: Feedstocks development: Research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) focused on feedstocks and feedstock...
Build your pond to last with a liquid liner
Build a pond without providing proper sealing and you`ll probably be watching your money getting washed down the drain. Pond cracks, pond holes andpond leakscan be a persistent and costly problem so heading them off before they start in the construction process is a very good idea. That means paying particular attention to lining your pond so that it can stand up to wear and tear properly. Any number of factors can cause the surface of a pond to deteriorate or break and lining it adequately is your first line of...
I Style Magnetic Liquid Filters
Description： Magnetic Liquid Filters are designed for removing Ferrum contaminationrfom liquid or semi-liquid materials with different viscosity, to keep materials purity and protect the equipment. Insulation (I Style) Magnetic Liquid Traps have sandwich, which can be filled with heat insulation materials such as water and oil, to meet the insulation demands of liquid passing through the traps.
Biomass is Carbon Neutral – What Does This Mean for Sustainability?
The topic of climate change is not without its fair share of controversy, and while there are dozens of conflicting scientific and political perspectives at play, one positive that has emerged from the chaos is that the average global citizen is far more aware of the importance of sustainability and environmental responsibility than perhaps ever before. This has trickled into the realm of official policy making, as developed nations all over the world have begun to turn their attention towards diversifying their...
