Biomass Power & Thermal
By Matt Soberg September 13, 2011

The 2005 U.S. Billion-Ton Study was intended to estimate the biomass potential within the country based upon assumptions regarding then current production capacity, availability and technology. Expanding on the original, the “2011 U.S. Billion-Ton Update: Biomass Supply for a Bioenergy and Bioproducts Industry,” known as the 2011 Billion-Ton Update, included more direct inventory analysis regarding primary feedstocks, focused price and supply quantities, and “rigorous treatment and modeling of resource sustainability,” according to the U.S. DOE.

The authors will address details of the report in a DOE webinar, “The U.S. Billion-Ton Update,” to be held on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 2-4 p.m. EDT.
