I need help researching business who compete for US market share in the field of biomass dewatering.
I have attached the data I have collected so far. Please use this as the basis for the research criteria: company name, type of company, website or reference sources, and any additional comments such as market share that would be great.
Please feel free to check or change any of the information I have already logged. But if you change them, please explain why in the "Comments" column.
Our business uses belt filter presses to "upgrade" biomass materials by lowering their original moisture content.
If you don't know what a belt filter press is, here is a good link to explain it:

Our competition may use belt presses, screw presses, chamber presses or even thermal drying. We will generally use only belt filter presses to provide our service.
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.
