Next Generation Biofeedstocks: Resources for Renewables

The purpose of this report is to analyze biofeedstocks as a source of renewables. Biofeedstocks can be converted into a number of chemical and polymer products through technologies such as fermentation, gasification, pyrolysis, catalysis, among others. This study assesses the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing biofeedstocks as well as providing supply estimates.
