Feedstock Logistics

The Logistics team works on developing systems and strategies to enable sustainable and economic harvest, transportation, and storage of feedstocks. The team focuses on the development and evaluation of harvest and logistics systems that are easily adaptable, produce consistent and quality feedstock for conversion, and are economically, energetically, and environmentally efficient and sustainable. 

The team is also investigating novel harvest and transport systems, demonstrating these systems at field-scale, and evaluating harvest and supply chain costs. The team also evaluates technologies for more efficient feedstock de-construction and drying.
