BioSTAR - Bioenergy Sustainability Tradeoffs Assessment Resource

The Bioenergy Sustainability Tradeoffs Assessment Resource (BioSTAR) tool (Figure 1) is being developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) with the support of the US Department of Energy’s BioEnergy Technologies Office (DOE BETO). BioSTAR is designed to help stakeholders quantify and visualize the potential sustainability benefits and tradeoffs of cellulosic biomass production systems (Figure 2).
