Energy Department Releases New 101 Video on Feedstocks

July 8, 2013

The Energy Department has released a new video in its Energy 101 series highlighting terrestrial feedstock production.

Fuels made from organic materials, or biomass, could replace much of the oil we import to power our nation's transportation systems and industries. That's why the Energy Department and the Bioenergy Technologies Office are working with partners to identify and develop economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable feedstocks for biofuels production here in the United States.

The new video covers potential non-edible feedstocks for use, as well as the harvesting and preparation processes needed before the material can be made into biofuel or other bioproducts at a biorefinery.

Feedstocks for Biofuels and More joins two other bioenergy-related 101 videos produced by the Energy Department: Algae-to-Fuels and Biofuels. To see the new Feedstocks for Biofuels and More video, visit the Energy Department's YouTube channel. A full text version is also available online.
