The Biomass as Feedstock for a Bioenergy and Bioproducts Industry: The Technical Feasibility of a Billion-Ton Annual Supply (generally referred to as the Billion-Ton Study or 2005 BTS), was an estimate of potential biomass available within the contiguous United States based on assumptions about current and future inventory production capacity, availability, and technology.

The report, Biomass as Feedstock for a Bioenergy and Bioproducts Industry: The Technical Feasibility of a Billion Ton Annual Supply (generally referred to as the Billion-Ton Study or 2005 BTS), was an estimate of “potential” biomass within the contiguous United States based on numerous assumptions about current and future inventory production capacity, availability, and technology.

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 (forthcoming) evaluates the potential environmental sustainability effects of a subset of production scenarios described in Volume 1.
