Biomass Research and Development Initiative (BRDI) @ OSU

This video provides an overview of the research being conducted at Oklahoma State University and partnering institutions via the USDA-NIFA, US DOE Biomass Research and Development Initiative (BRDI) titled “Sustainable Feedstock Production Supply Systems to Support Cellulosic Biorefinery Industries”.

Research activities discussed include feedstocks production, biomass supply logistics, and storage. Also included are preliminary findings on dual usage of switchgrass production for both livestock and biofuels.

Partnering with OSU’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, are: the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, Idaho National Laboratory, AGCO Industries, and Stinger, Inc. The Principal Investigator for this BRDI project is Ray Huhnke, Director of OSU’s Biobased Products and Energy Center.

Videos are coordinated by Ray Huhnke and Amanda Erichsen, OSU Biobased Products and Energy Center.

Video production was conducted by Craig Woods, OSU Agricultural Communication Services.

Funding provided by: USDA-NIFA, US DOE Biomass Research and Development Initiative, Grant No. 2009-10006-06070. Title: Sustainable Feedstock Production Supply Systems to Support Cellulosic Biorefinery Industries.
