I need help researching the amount of available biomass materials in the United States of America that can be improved by processing through a belt filter press.
I have attached the data I have collected so far. Please use this as the basis for the research criteria: list good candidate biomass materials, their approximate annual tonnage availability in the US, their approximate starting moisture content, your source (this is most important, please use credible sources) and any comments or discoveries you have made about the material. Of course, I would like for you to add new materials that I didn't originally log to my list as well.
Please feel free to check or change any of the numbers I have already logged. But if you change them, please explain why in the "Comments" column.
If you don't know what a belt filter press is, here is a good link to explain it:

Our business uses belt filter presses to "upgrade" biomass materials by lowering their original moisture content.
For example, we take brewer's spent grains (wheat & barley grains that were boiled to make beer) with a moisture content of 80% and we squeeze much of the water out of it, reducing the moisture content to about 57% in order to create a low-moisture product that can be easily transported and sold as livestock feed or power plant fuel or as feedstock for cellulosic ethanol, or other potential uses.
We also upgrade materials before the user processes them. For example, we can reduce the moisture content of wood chips that are to be burned in a power plant just before they are put into the boiler by running them through our press. This means that the power company invests less energy into burning off water before finally producing electricity.

Please be willing to make revisions to your work as necessary.
I will award this project by 9:00 A.M. Eastern Standard Time (US). Please do not bid if you can not get started right away. I would like for this research to be complete in 1-2 days.
PS- Please only reference the file "Biomass Outlook" and ignore the attached file "Residual Outlook".
