Version 1.9.5 Minneapolis Biomass Exchange (MBioEX) Platform Released
Quality Control Services
Users are now able to send tests through our patented quality control service in Beta. Submit a test through us with ease and receive results through your account. This can help save time uploading data yourself and sending test results to potential buyers. Read more here, and let us know if you are ready to start using the service!
Listing Location No Longer Required
In the past, every listing was required to have a city, state, and country assigned to it. Now, you are only required to provide the country of origin. This feature will be especially valuable to those of our users who do not want to disclose the location of their clients.
It has been one year since we started collecting and graphically presenting agricultural market information gathered from the USDA here. A few agricultural biomass trends are emerging and the charts are becoming more valuable as more information is collected. Thank you to the USDA for providing the raw reports!
We have also setup a wood markets page with links to several firms that provide wood market reports which are available for a fee. If you know of any additional wood market sites or information, please let us know by posting a comment here on our blog or through our contact us page.
We are now providing North American export services for feedstocks that most often include wood pellets, wood chips, and hays. Export services include port inspections, access to US insurance and working capital programs, and payment support services. You can find more information on export services here.
Mission and Core Values
Mission and core values have been added to our website under the about us tab. We believe these further define our roles and aspirations as a company to best serve our users. Please feel free to read them here.
Biomass Crop Assistance Program
We’ve permanently moved the U.S. based Biomass Crop Assistance Program overview and reports to our exclusively BCAP site: http://bcapbiomass.com. As the USDA releases more BCAP results, we will update the BCAP Biomass site with those reports.
