Bioenergy Resources & Engineering Systems

The Bioenergy Resource and Engineering Systems Team is an interdisciplinary team of Economists, Agricultural  engineers and natural scientists who address issues of Biomass feedstock resources and the logistic and environmental effects of supplying  biomass to facilities that use biomass to produce fuels, power/heat or bioproducts. The team supports the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of the Biomass Program whose goal is to transform the nation’s renewable and abundant biomass resources into cost competitive, high performance biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower.



Since 2003, the team has focused on:

  1. Biomass Resource Economics and Supplies
  2. Supply Chain Logistics Modeling
  3. Environmental Effects and Sustainability of Biomass supplies
  4. International Resource and Environmental Analysis
  5. NEPA Support to the Department of Energy Integrated Biorefinery projects
  6. Support to the Sun Grant Initiative/DOE/USDA Regional Feedstock Partnerships
