    THE USE OF SWITCHGRASS BIOFUEL PELLETS AS A GREENHOUSE GAS
    OFFSET STRATEGY
    R. Samson t, M. Drisdelle 2, L. Mulkins 1, C. Lapointe 2, and P. Duxbury t
    ABSTRACT
    For more than 20 years, efforts have been made to grow dedicated biomass crops such as
    switchgrass, but no economically viable, energetically efficient transformation pathway
    has been described to convert this material into a usable energy form to displace fossil
    fuels. To meet this goal, it is proposed that warm season grasses such as switchgrass are
    used for heat related energy applications. This is considered to be the energy use with the
    highest comparative advantage for switchgrass, as the application requires little
    upgrading of the original energy quality of switchgrass, and it best matches the
    widespread production of the crop in North America. To improve combustion efficiency,
    the biomass quality of switchgrass can be upgraded through cultural management
    practices to reduce the chlorine, potassium and silica content of the fuel. Densification of
    the grass into a pellet form appears economically attractive and is essential to create
    highly controlled combustion for space heating applications.
    Switchgrass pellets can be converted into usable heat at 82-84% efficiency in a close
    coupled gasifier pellet stove designed to handle moderately high ash fuels. Relative to oil
    and natural gas systems, switchgrass pellets have the potential to reduce fuel heating
    costs and greenhouse gas emissions in eastern Canada by approximately 30% and 90%,
    respectively. Compared to all other biofuel production and energy transformation
    pathways currently proposed, switchgrass pellet heating offers the highest net energy
    yield per hectare, the highest energy output to input ratio, the greatest economic
    advantage over fossil fuels, and the most significant potential to offset greenhouse gases.
