The opportunity and landscape for bioenergy in North America are clear. The country's industry and society are strategically well-placed next to an abundance of bioenergy feedstock.
Companies that historically have focused on oil and gas production can evolve their businesses to meet net-zero challenges.
Chasing new ways to manage volatility, advance sustainability, and build resilience can boost individual companies and benefit the broader business ecosystem.
The yearly global margin pool could surpass $100 billion in the coming decade—if market players secure more feedstock supplies, improve process economics, and address pricing issues.
Why do some companies always seem to emerge stronger from a period of volatility? Rather than focus just on mitigating potential harm, they look for opportunities to capitalize on the disruption.

By tailoring an incremental approach to their constraints and opportunities, upstream players can reduce their carbon footprint while limiting any negative economic impact.
