Biomass Resource Information

Comprehensive biomass resource information is available from Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Bioenergy Feedstock Information Network. This Web site's Biomass Resources section offers a wealth of biomass resource-related information, including links to resource data for herbaceous crops, short-rotation woody crops, oil crops, agriculture residues, forestry residues, and municipal residues.

Biomass resource maps are also available from the NREL Dynamic Maps, GIS Data, and Analysis Tools Web site.
