Bioenergy from Field to Refinery - Feedstock Logistics

Successful expansion of the bioeconomy is limited by the availability of affordable, sustainable, high-performance feedstock. Delivery of this valuable resource starts with production on the farm, where valuable innovations have maximized yield, improved harvest efficiencies, and enhanced biomass quality metrics. Still, the value points along the feedstock supply chain determine the market feasibility of the bioeconomy. This event convenes biofuel feedstock logistics, production, and economic experts from across the nation to talk about the supply chain logistics and a vision for the future.
