In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Biomass Research and Development Act, ABLC joins the Biomass Research and Development (BR&D) Board in hosting the Bioeconomy Initiative Forum.
Established through the Biomass Research and Development Act, the BR&D Board oversees the Bioeconomy Initiative—a coordinated federal effort to harness America’s biomass potential for biofuels, bioproducts, and biopower. Co-chaired by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Energy, the BR&D Board has tirelessly marched toward its vision for a vibrant U.S. bioeconomy that enhances economic growth, energy security, and environmental quality by maximizing the sustainable use of our nation’s biomass resources.
The purpose of the Bioeconomy Initiative Forum is to share the great progress to date on the Bioeconomy Initiative, including accomplishments and plans for the Board’s Interagency Working Groups (IWGs), since the release of The Bioeconomy Initiative: Implementation Framework.
The Forum will consist of a series of 4 fireside chat-style sessions, focused on thematic key accomplishments of the Bioeconomy Initiative, with significant time for questions and input gathered from the public and industry stakeholders. This highly interactive event will provide multiple opportunities for attendees to engage with BR&D Board member agencies, build new relationships and public-private partnerships, and broaden participation in the Bioeconomy Initiative.
The Bioeconomy Initiative Forum is free and open to the public
