DuPont wins 2012 sustainable Biofuels award for feedstock innovation

DuPont has won the 2012 Sustainable Biofuels Award in the Sustainable Feedstock Innovation Category for its Stover Harvest Collection Project.  This is a comprehensive research and scale-up project for DuPont Industrial Biosciences that significantly advances the cellulosic ethanol industry toward commercialization and furthers DuPont’s efforts to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

DuPont received the award at the World Biofuels Markets 2012 Congress, Europe’s largest conference and exhibition focused on biofuels. The awards are designed to recognize innovation in the development of sustainable and renewable fuels.

“It is an honor to receive this award,” said Jim Collins, president of DuPont Industrial Biosciences. “We recognize that a reliable, sustainable source of biomass is critical to the success of advanced biofuels. Our collaborative approach involving growers, researchers, environmental organizations and government ensures we’ll be able to meet the needs of the evolving market sustainably while creating new opportunities for rural America.”

The Stover Harvest Collection Project is a highly collaborative endeavor, involving experts in the field of agronomy from DuPont’s Pioneer Hi-Bred business and Iowa State University working in conjunction with custom harvest equipment manufacturers and more than 50 local farmers. The project provides key knowledge on the sustainable collection, transport and storage of corn stover for conversion to biofuel. Going into its third year, the project is expanding its reach in 2012 with a goal of involving up to 150 farmers and collecting biomass that will be used in its planned biorefinery in Nevada, Iowa.

“We had thousands of nominations from around the world and across the entire biofuels value chain,” said Claire Poole, event director for Green Power Conferences, the organizer of the awards and conference. “The winning companies demonstrated a layer of achievement and promise above their peers that bodes well for themselves as well as the industry.”
