The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Biomass Research and Development (R&D) Board Operations Committee is hosting a bioeconomy listening session entitled 'Building a Billion Ton Bioeconomy in the United States.' The event will encourage attendees to share their thoughts on the future of the national bioeconomy, and will specifically solicit input on opportunities and challenges that can be addressed to achieve a focused and successful bioeconomy vision for the U.S. The recently released Federal Activities Report on the Bioeconomy is recommended reading for the session, as it emphasizes the potential of the U.S. bioeconomy and goes into current federally funded activities benefiting the bioeconomy. The listening session is occurring on May 5, 2016, from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. (EDT) and is accessible online with the session passkey 123.
