This page provides a variety of multimedia products to enhance knowledge and understanding of biomass resources, processes, and projects. The links on this page lead to biomass-related images, videos, and presentations.


The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) maintains a searchable online library of photographs called Photographic Information Exchange (PIX).

A selection of biomass PIX photos can be found on the NREL site by doing a text search or visual search for "biomass."

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service Photo Gallery is an excellent source for agricultural and forestry biomass resource photographs. Additionally, a selection of good photos of potential dedicated bioenergy crops, such as switchgrass and poplars, can be found at Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Bioenergy Feedstock Development Program.


Energy Department's Energy 101 Series | Algae-to-Fuels
In September 2012, the Energy Department highlighted algae in its Energy 101 video series. The video shows an algae farm and demonstrates how algae is converted into energy. More specifically, the video discusses algae's viability to create biofuels. 

Biomass 2012
On July 10–11, 2012, the U.S. Department of Energy's Bioenergy Technologies Office hosted its fifth annual conference, Biomass 2012: Confronting Challenges, Creating Opportunities – Sustaining a Commitment to Bioenergy, at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center. The Bioenergy Technologies Office has created several videos archiving the event, including an interview with Secretary Chu, clips from keynote speakers, an image documentary, as well as several interview spots with conference participants. Click on the link to the Bioenergy KDF YouTube channel below to view highlights from the conference.

Project LIBERTY Groundbreaking
On March 13, 2012, the Bioenergy Technologies Office's Brian Duff participated in the POET-DSM Project LIBERTY groundbreaking activities in Emmettsburg, Iowa. Click on the links below to view the keynote speakers at the event.

Technology Demonstration
Cellulosic biofuels made from agricultural residue have caught the attention of many farmers and could be the next revolution in renewable biofuels production. Click on the video link below to see how an innovative technology that converts agricultural residues from the corn harvest into renewable biofuels could help the United States produce increasing volumes of cellulosic biofuels over the coming decade.

Biomass 2011
The Bioenergy Technologies Office has several videos archiving its annual conference, Biomass 2011: Replace the Whole Barrel, Supply the Whole Market—The New Horizons of Bioenergy. Click on the links below to view highlights from the conference's keynote speakers, as well as Program Manager Paul Bryan's tour through the interactive exhibit hall.
