North America's Bioenergy Revolution
North America has been on the cusp of reinventing how it uses natural resources. Through agriculture, forestry waste, and algal materials, the United States alone has the potential to produce at least one billion dry tonnes of biomass annually without adverse environmental impact. This biomass can be used throughout the economy, changing how the country produces and uses fuel, energy, and critical everyday products. The bioenergy revolution is here: technology, policy, and market forces are establishing the backbone of a bio-based transition towards a more sustainable and carbon neutral future.
