27 The mobile Process Demonstration Unit to be housed here will have unique capabilities not only in the nation but we think in the world. This is really the only one . . . and were extremely proud that its here in Idaho because this group has worked very hard. John Ferrell Office of Biomass Program at DOEs Office of Energy Efficiency Renewable Energy. In addition INL developed the Biomass Research and Development Resource Library which provides relevant real-world information about research biomass samples. Biomass laboratory studies traditionally have been limited to pristine plant samples which dont account for real-world variables such as industrial collection drying or grinding methods. The new biomass sample data system allows simple logging of such information so research studies can control for these variables and learn how they impact sample integrity. Finally INL organized a symposium that was chosen for inclusion at the 2012 American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting. The panel included distinguished speakers from across the biofuels research community including INL DOE the U.S. Department of Agriculture and universities in the U.S. and Canada. INLs biomass sample data system includes an extensive sample library more than 2000 samples and growing and a data system that tracks samples and provides pedigree information about their handling.
