The Bioenergy Technologies Office hosted the Bioenergy’s Role in Soil Carbon Storage Workshop in March 2022, which covered the topic of soil carbon storage with a focus on the role of bioenergy.
Input and insight from the workshop were sourced from diverse experts, including governmental, industrial, agricultural, silvicultural, and academic stakeholders. The workshop included discussions covering methods for building healthy soils, decarbonizing agriculture and forests, and assessing full life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions associated with generating biomass for bioenergy. The types of biomass considered included energy crops, agricultural residues, and forestry residues.
