Abstract: This publication establishes far-reaching goals for increasing the role of biobased energy and products in the U.S. economy. It represents the collective vision of the Biomass Technical Advisory Committee established by the Biomass R&D Act of 2000. The Advisory Committee is a group of 26 individuals from industry, academia, non-profits, and the agricultural and forestry sectors who are experts in their fields. The Committee believes that the Vision goals are technically feasible given future advances in research and development and an appropriate mix of market incentives and public policies. The Committee recognizes that economic, international, and many other factors can impact the future demand for and development of biomass technologies, and thus the ability to achieve these Vision goals. The Committee believes, however, that it is appropriate that long-term goals be challenging. This Vision puts forth the challenge of pursuing the opportunities that biomass technologies hold for the United States.
