Biomass is treated on the farm to produce lignin and residual cellulose solids                      
   Lignin is shipped to the      biorefinery to  make
   Lignoil or chemicals.
 The residual cellulose solids  are dried and densified by  compaction for shipment to  the biorefinery.
 Mobinol Fuel Co. converts lignin to Lignoil fuel, chemicals & cosmetics. Residual cellulose is converted to ethanol &chemicals.
The Alkcell Process and the Lignoil Process take biomass such as switchgrass or corn stover and converts it to lignin and densified cellulose solids using materials and methods that can be implemented on the farm or near the growing site and easily transported to biorefineries. Below is a diagram of the process in general. Further details can be found on the Information & Contact page .


Switchgrass Group Develops On-Farm Biofuel Processing4/26/2014 7:00 AM
By Philip Gruber Staff Writer Lancaster Farming    
A plan to make biofuel partially on the farm is starting in Montgomery County. Typically, the entire process of converting high-energy crops to biofuel has been done at a biorefinement plant, but it is expensive to transport the bulky, heavy crop to the refinery. Transporting the grass to Lancaster, even from reasonably close Montgomery County, is a big expense, though, and bedding is a poor option for farmers who live farther from auctions, farmer Frank McDonnell said. Chemist John J. Savarese said he has figured out a way to break down switchgrass on the farm so that the resulting material can be shipped to a biorefinery inexpensively.
