National Bioenergy Day is Oct. 21 and agencies across the United States have scheduled webinars to teach the public about bioenergy.
This presentation by Klein Kirby of A. Wilbert's Sons, LLC in Plaquemine, Louisiana, gives a landowner's perspective on growing trees for use in the biofuels/bioproducts industry.
The Deep South has the climate, land and infrastructure to produce 50 percent of the biofuel feedstocks for the United States. Energycane and sweet sorghum are two crops that can be grown in the Deep South as biofuel and bioproduct feedstocks. Presentation by Dr. Don Day related to energycane and sweet sorghum crops researchers with the SUBI project are growing to use in making biofuels and bioproducts.
The vision of the Tool Shed is to identify “renewable energy opportunities” by providing stakeholders access to agro-, economic, socio-, and technical data and information resources that are relevant to the evaluation of potential opportunities.
Web Soil Survey (WSS) provides soil data and information produced by the National Cooperative Soil Survey. Soil surveys can be used for general farm, local, and wider area planning. Onsite investigation is needed in some cases, such as soil quality assessments and certain conservation and engineering applications.
In the last few years, energy production in the U.S. has grown substantially. Increases in natural gas, crude oil and biofuels have led major growth in our nation's energy portfolio. This map lets you explore each energy sector's changes and growth over the last two decades.
Information from Ceres, an LSU AgCenter industry partner for SUBI, about harvesting and transporting biomass to a bioenergy facility.
PowerPoint presentation about the Life Cycle Assessment of fermentable carbohydrates for biofuels and commodity chemicals.
PowerPoint presentation about biofuel feedstock economics by Dr. Michael Salassi.
Presentation by Jacob Foy on the use of sugar mill effluent as it relates to processing crops for use in the biofuels industry.
Powerpoint presentation about sustainable feedstock production systems for sweet sorghum.
Dr. Collins Kimbeng talks about growing crops for use in the biofuels industry.
Michael Blazier, an LSU AgCenter forestry specialist, discusses the role carbon from plants plays in the biofuels industry. (Runtime: 4:34)
(Video) The videos in this series are aimed at conversion of agricultural feedstocks into biofuels and biochemicals, and are intended as an introduction to chemical engineering for engineers working on agricultural feedstock development, production and processing for bioprocesses.

(Video) Dr. Kenneth Gravois and Dr. Collins Kimbeng, LSU AgCenter plant breeders, hold a candid conversation to describe their jobs as plant breeders and courses they took in college to become plant breeders, as well as the satisfaction they get from being plant breeders. (Runtime 15:37)
In this radio interview, John Russin, LSU AgCenter vice-chancellor for Extension and Research, speaks with Don Molino of the Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation’s Agri-News Radio Network about long range plans for the AgCenter’s Sustainable Bioproducts Initiative (SUBI).
Video and audio information related to the tasks of the LSU AgCenter's Sustainable Bioproducts Initiative (SUBI): Production, Conversion, Economic, Education, Extension, Pilot Plant, General Topics.
(Video, 6:12) Donal Day, Collins Kimbeng and Sonny Viator, all of the LSU AgCenter, talk about the USDA grant the LSU AgCenter has received to produce two new crops that can be planted across the southern region of the United States and are to be used as biofuel crops. The two crops that have been targeted are energy cane and sweet sorghum. (Runtime 6:12)
(Video News 06/14/13) Some students are getting a little science with their summer. A local camp visited two LSU AgCenter facilities to learn about crops and biofuels. LSU AgCenter correspondent Tobie Blanchard was along for the tour.
(Video) Sonny Viator, an LSU AgCenter plant breeder, discusses how sweet sorghum can be grown and used to create biofuels. (Runtime: 5:35)
(Video) Derek Dorman of the LSU AgCenter's Sustainable Bioproducts Initiative (SUBI) explains analyses that are conducted at the Audubon Sugar Institute on feedstock used to create biofuels. (Runtime: 2:17)
(Video) Shyue Lu from the LSU AgCenter's Sustainable Bioproducts Inititative (SUBI) explains how feedstock samples are prepared for analyses in the pilot plant at the AgCenter's Audubon Sugar Institute. The samples are run through the Near Infrared Spectrometer and, then, through a hydrolic press. (Runtime 1:16)
(Video) Adam Hoogewind of the LSU AgCenter's Audubon Sugar Institute discusses how butanol is created from feedstock of sweet sorghum. (Runtime: 0:58)
(Video News 02/05/13) Louisiana’s biofuels industry is growing, and the LSU AgCenter is fueling that growth. A new pilot plant will process crops that can be turned into bioproducts. LSU AgCenter correspondent Tobie Blanchard has the story. (Runtime: 1:51)
