The U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today released a multi-agency strategy to accelerate innovative technologies that harness the nation’s biomass resources for affordable biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower. The Bioeconomy Initiative: Implementation Framework was developed by the Biomass Research and Development Board (BR&D Board) to guide interagency coordination for such an effort.
The Framework presents goals and actions for addressing knowledge and technology gaps in:
- Advanced algae systems
- Feedstock genetic improvement, production, management, and logistics
- Biomass conversion and carbon utilization
- Transportation, distribution, infrastructure, and end use
- Bioeconomy analysis
- Bioeconomy sustainability.
