About IBSS

Commercial Partners

As part of its involvement, Rentech will assist in testing both herbaceous and woody feedstocks developed by the IBSS partnership in their Product Demonstration Unit (PDU) in Commerce City, CO. This demonstration unit, partially funded by the Department of Energy, integrates the ClearFuels gasification process with the technology available at the Rentech Energy Technology Center (RETC) for the production of renewable synthetic fuels from biomass. The PDU will provide real-world insights into the performance of these IBSS feedstocks. The IBSS partnership will work closely with Rentech to integrate the advanced biomass production, harvesting and storage operations necessary for a commercially viable process.

The development of woody feedstock for the production of biofuels is a common interest for Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP) and the IBSS partnership. LP is not only seeking ways to minimize the environmental impacts of logistics and creating a sustainable supply chain, but has invested time and effort into exploring the opportunities presented by the likely expansion of the biofuels industry. LP and the IBSS partnership believe the development of the biofuels industry will create new prospects for commercial partners, and introduce new potential for more effective utilization of the resource. As part of its involvement, LP will bring experience in logistics and processing of woody biomass.
