EdeniQ Grows Improved Energy Crops in California’s Central Valley

Submitted by on June 23, 2009 – 2:18 pmNo Comment

EdeniQ, a California-based technology company serving the global biofuels industry, announced that it has begun a multi-year, field-to-fuel trial to evaluate low-carbon, non-food energy crops, like switchgrass, in California’s Central Valley. The company’s pilot-scale field trial of switchgrass was planted this spring near Visalia, California with new, high-yielding seed varieties from Ceres, Inc., a leading developer and marketer of dedicated energy crops. Biomass from the site will be processed into biofuel at EdeniQ’s Visalia test plant, beginning later this year. Over the course of the trial, EdeniQ will evaluate the impact of different inputs like water, and even renewable compost, on biomass yields from two commercial switchgrass varieties, EG 1101 and EG 1102. The company has previously tested high-biomass sweet sorghum in the Central Valley and has ongoing trials of energycane in California’s Imperial Valley.    READ MORE
