Abstract

Dupont is opening a cellulosic ethanol plant in Nevada, IA. Currently they collect all of the corn stover by hiring custom harvesters and also coordinate the transportation of the biomass. This requires a shredder and baler for each pass through the field for collection. A crew then also comes to stack the bales for storage until they are needed.
