DOE awards $9M to Antares Group to improve sustainability of cellulosic biorefineries

The US Department of Energy (DOE) will award up to $9 million to The Antares Group, Inc. to enable more stable and diverse future feedstock supplies (corn stover, switchgrass, and other warm season grasses) for three cellulosic biorefineries in Iowa and Kansas, while increasing both profitability and ecological benefits in those areas.

The project will incorporate a broad range of conservation practices, develop and validate advanced landscape management tools, and collect data on key sustainability indicators and feedstock logistics performance.

The project will involve landowners and multi-disciplinary stakeholders in the landscape design process, establish field research to quantify and improve sustainability metrics, and assess logistics systems needed to provide high quality cellulosic feedstocks to conversion facilities for bioenergy.

Founded in 1992 as a private professional-services firm, Antares is focused on implementing cost-effective clean energy solutions.
