Bioenergy has the potential to be a major source of renewable energy for the nation, powering homes, businesses, vehicles, and planes using diverse and sustainable fuels such as algae and agricultural waste. To grow America’s bioenergy economy and reduce our dependence on oil imports, industry, academia, nonprofits, policy makers, federal agencies, local governments, and other stakeholders must work together to develop and deploy commercially viable biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower.
