Locoal is developing a portable, multi-feedstock biomass conversion system that is beneficial for advancing the bioeconomy in the United States by enabling the utilization of abundant, renewable, and diverse biomass resources for producing biofuels, biochar, and resilient energy.
Intelligence enables biomass conversion systems to monitor, control, and optimize their conversion process using sensors, data analysis, and feedback loops. This results in higher efficiency, lower emissions, and less waste.
Wood waste is one of the most common sources of biomass and accounts for about 2.1% of U.S. annual total energy consumption in 2021. However, there is still a lot of wood waste that is not being utilized for energy production due to lack of infrastructure and incentives to collect and transport waste wood to biomass facilities.
