Sustainable bioenergy: Policies and practices
Fuel from farms and forests
Emerging bioenergy markets offer improved economic and management opportunities, while raising tough questions about environmental sustainability.
EDF is at the forefront of discussions about policies and practices for bioenergy production, a complex process that cannot be left to chance.
As the U.S. seeks renewable energy sources, biomass is often the cheapest and most readily available energy feedstock.
Knowing how much biomass is available is the first step in determining sound policies and practices.
Despite the rapid growth of bioenergy, federal and state policies lag behind, and market practices are in flux.
Farmers to the rescue
Farmers are EDF’s partners in novel efforts to restore water quality and restore habitat.
