USDOE Billion-Ton Report

The U.S. Department of Energy released the 2016 U.S. Billion-Ton Update: Biomass Supply for a Bioenergy and Bioproducts Industry report detailing U.S. biomass feedstock potential nationwide. This report examines the nation’s capacity to produce a billion dry tons of biomass resources annually for energy uses without impacting other vital U.S. farm and forest products, such as food, feed, and fiber crops. The study provides industry, policymakers, and the agricultural community with county-level data.
