2016 BILLION-TON REPORT
The 2016 Billion-Ton Report: Advancing Domestic Resources for a Thriving Bioeconomy is the third in a series of national biomass resource assessments commissioned by the U.S. Department of Energy. This report aims to inform national bioenergy policies and research, development, and deployment strategies. It is the first volume in a two-volume set. Volume 2 evaluates the potential environmental sustainability effects of a subset of production scenarios described in Volume 1.
This interactive component, designed for the Bioenergy Knowledge Discovery Framework (KDF), offers detailed data visualization for potential cellulosic and algal biomass availability in the United States. Data sets include potential energy crop production, agricultural residue availability, and forestry production, as well as the potential economic availability of biomass resources delivered to biorefineries. Users can find key data sets by report chapter below, or use Data Download for further analysis.
Volume 2 evaluates the potential environmental effects of three national biomass production scenarios described in Volume 1
