Item #d94sep75

Biofuels: At the Crossroads, U.S. Dept. Energy, 24 pp., July 1994. Contact Biofuels Systems Div., U.S. DOE, 1000 Independence Ave. SW, Washington DC 20585.

Gives an overview of this program: mission, need, status of biofuel use, collaborations with industry, strategic goals. The research, development, demonstration and commercialization activities are designed to encourage the use of biofuels for transportation.

Item #d94sep76

Biomass Power Commercialization: The Federal Role, E. Denzler, 13 pp., 1994 (UCS).

Item #d94sep77

A "How-to" Primer for Biomass Resource Development (EPRI TR-103439), 52 pp., Dec. 1993, $200 to nonmembers (EPRI).

Large-scale use of biomass feedstocks for producing electricity will depend on establishing regional infrastructures to plan, establish and manage integrated production systems. Such development is currently constrained by uncertainties in crop yields and costs and limited public and farmer awareness of the regional and rural socioeconomic and environmental benefits that would result.

Item #d94sep78

Strategies for Achieving a Sustainable, Clean, and Cost-Effective Biomass Resource, 1994 (EPRI). Also contact Jane Turnbull, Project Manager, EPRI (415-855-2000).

A "white paper" that concludes that woody and herbaceous biomass could supply up to 100,000 Mw of electricity in the U.S. Discusses the markets and agricultural policies that need to be developed. Calls on Congress to address this issue in the 1995 Farm Bill.
