Regional Feedstock Partnership Report 

The U.S. Department of Energy and the Sun Grant Initiative established the Regional Feedstock Partnership to address information gaps associated with enabling the vision of a sustainable, reliable, billion-ton U.S. bioenergy industry by the year 2030. The Partnership is composed of representatives from land-grant universities organized under the Sun Grant Initiative, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and industry.

The Regional Feedstock Summary Report summarizes the accomplishments of the Regional Feedstock Partnership throughout the 7-year period of 2008 through 2014. It captures the progress made in validating assumptions regarding crop yields in the 2005 Billion-Ton Study, informing and revising the assumptions in the 2011 U.S. Billion-Ton Update and the 2016 Billion-Ton Report: Advancing Domestic Resources for a Thriving Bioeconomy, and in advancing biomass feedstock research and development.

Appendix A details Crop/Team Reports, and Appendix B lists publications and products created from the Regional Feedstock Partnership.
