    MIDWEST BIOFUELS CAN BE NEW ENERGY – UCS STUDY

    New analysis finds that 10 states could provide abundant agricultural byproducts for low-carbon fuel and electricity; Sustainable practices can turn crop residues and manure into bioenergy without competing with food supplies

    July 21, 2014 (Union of Concerned Scientists)

    “U.S. agriculture could provide up to 155 million tons of crop residues and 60 million tons of manure to produce clean fuels and electricity in 2030 that would help cut the nation’s oil use and phase out the use of coal, according to [ Turning Agricultural Residues and Manure into Bioenergy (2014) from] the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS)…[T]he top 10 states with the potential to use the residues left behind from crop harvest and livestock production, such as plant materials and manure, to create low-carbon fuels and electricity are: Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, Minnesota, Arkansas, Texas, California, Indiana, South Dakota and North Carolina. Together, these states can provide about two-thirds of total projected U.S. crop residues and manure in 2030…[O]verall, the U.S. could tap nearly 680 million tons of biomass resources each year by 2030, enough to produce more than 10 billion gallons of ethanol, or 166 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity — equal to 4 percent of total U.S. power consumption in 2010…The UCS analysis found that the benefits of biomass depend on using the right types of resources at an appropriate scale…” click here for more
