FAQ: BIOoutput Blog

1. What is "BIOoutput"?

BIOoutput is our name for the broad spectrum of products and energy that result from the conversion of biomass feedstock. This includes ancillary products like the vehicles that operate on this output.

2. What is the focus of the BIOoutput Blog?

The third of four biomass conversion blogs, this one is intended to help identify the new products, energy supplies, and markets that will help to make biomass conversion more economically feasible. The other three related blogs are the BIOstock Blog, BIOconversion Blog, and the BIOwaste Blog.

As biomass conversion technologies are deployed, the need for a broader range of new processes to create by-product alternatives to fossil fuel refinery by-products will also become prominent.

3. What is the significance of the Rubik's cube imagery on the Blogs?

The Rubik's cube is emblematic of the multi-faceted energy puzzle that confronts civilization. This four blog series is my attempt to create some semblance of order out of the chaos of global interlinking challenges - geopolitics, employment, pollution, energy, waste, carbon emissions, etc. Each Blog is an attempt to work on a side of the puzzle - BIOstock, BIOconversion, BIOoutput, and BIOwaste. Solve these and I believe many international problems will be substantially mitigated.
