The Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) provides information, data, and tools to help fleets and other transportation decision makers find ways to reduce petroleum consumption through the use of alternative and renewable fuels, advanced vehicles, and other fuel-saving measures.
BFNUF works with universities and industry partners to maintain a library of herbaceous and woody biomass samples. All analyses performed on these samples, including moisture content, compositional analysis, ash content, or fuel characteristics, are included in an extensive web-accessible feedstock properties database.
The Census of Agriculture, taken every five years, is a complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. The Census looks at land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures. For America’s farmers and ranchers, the Census of Agriculture is their voice, their future and their responsibility.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) originally developed this application for biopower with funding from the Environmental Protection Agency's Blue Skyways Collaborative. The Department of Energy's Office of Biomass Program provided funding for biofuels functionality. More information on funding agencies is available: http://www.blueskyways.org and http://www.eere.energy.gov/biomass/.
Potential global biodiversity impacts from near-term gasoline production are compared to biofuel, a renewable liquid transportation fuel expected to substitute for gasoline in the near term (i.e., from now until c.
Bioenergy Experts from Government, Finance, Business, and Forestry to Address Renewable Heating Market Challenges and Opportunities
Portland, ME, April 1, 2015 – The Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC), the leading voice for North American biomass and heating fuels technologies, today announced its conference program for the 7th annual Northeast Biomass Heating Expo 2015 (NEBHx). The region’s largest biomass heating conference will assess the challenges of biomass project financing, integrating heating systems into homes and businesses, continuing the sustainability of wood fuels, and much more.

The 2030 land use map is based on a Billion Ton-2 (BT-2) projection with an assumed $50/dt farmgate price for cellulosic feedstocks and 1% annual increase in yields.
This report describes the structure of the current (2011-07) version of the Biomass Scenario Model (BSM). BSM aims to provide a framework for exploring the potential contribution of biofuel technologies to the transportation energy supply for the United States over the next several decades. The model has evolved significantly from the prototype that was developed as part of the Role of Biomass in America’s Energy Future (RBAEF) project.
Understanding the development of the biofuels industry in the United States is important to policymakers and industry. The Biomass Scenario Model (BSM) is a system dynamics model of the biomass-to-biofuels system that can be used to explore policy effects on biofuels development. Because of the complexity of the model, as well as the wide range of possible future conditions that affect biofuels industry development, we have not developed a single reference case but instead developed a set of specific scenarios that provide various contexts for our analyses.
