Abstract:

The United States has become increasingly dependent in recent decades on imported petroleum to meet its energy needs. A portfolio of more diverse and domestic feedstocks for our nations energy and chemical supply must be found to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and to secure future energy supply. Biomass resources are a sustainable and environmentally friendly feedstock that can contribute significantly to a diverse energy portfolio. The Roadmap identifies a concrete strategy of research and policy measures for decisionmakers. It identifies measures needed to advance biomass technologies and enable an economically viable, sustainable and economically desirable biobased industry.
