National Laboratories Feedstock Inventory by Program

The inventory was developed by the members of the Feedstock Logistics Interagency Working Group of the Biomass Research and Development Board. The purpose of this inventory is to determine the level of logistical activities within the federal government and to identify federal programs engaged in biomass feedstock logistics research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D). The inventory will help improve coordination and collaboration across the federal government to overcome barriers in the commercialization of biofuels.

The tables below show the logistical programs at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
