DOE 'Billion Ton Study' Update

Repost from 25×25.org:

DOE ‘Billion Ton Study’ Update Shows Biomass Still Sufficient to Meet Goals

The DOE this week released an update to its 2005 Billion Ton Study that says biomass feedstock under baseline assumptions remain sufficient to meet near- and long-term bioenergy goals, including the production of 85 billion gallons of biofuel annually, enough to displace a third of the nation’s transportation fuel demand. In fact, the update says, under a high-yield scenario, more ambitious goals may be feasible. Unlike the 2005 version, the update takes into consideration environmental sustainability and identifies the likely costs to access the biomass resources.
