Usda bioenergy strategy l.jpg

USDA BioEnergy Strategy

  • Focused to meet President’s Biofuel Targets

    • 36 B gallons by 2022

    • 60 B gallons by 2030

  • Emphasize investment in Commercializing “drop-in” replacement biofuels

    • Bioproducts and Biopower to add value

  • Invest in alcohol fuels where appropriate and viable
