Description

This study examines the economic feasibility of using Iowa's crop residues to generate electricity. Iowa was chosen because of the high crop residue densities and the dispersed nature of Iowa's power plants. If the use of crop residue is not economically feasible in Iowa, then it is likely that it will not be feasible elsewhere.
