​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​High-Yield Scenario W​orkshop


The “High-Yield Scenario” workshop series was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (DOE/EERE) Biomass Program to identify and discuss the challenges associated with substantially increasing production of lignocellulosic biomass resources, such as agricultural crop residues (in particular, corn stover) and herbaceous and woody energy crops, to sustainably supply feedstock for bi​​orefineries.

​Workshop participants were selected from widely known and respected experts in diverse segments of industry, academia, and government. Individual workshops were held in St. Louis, Missouri, on December 3, 2009, and in Chicago, Illinois, on December 10 and 11, 2009.
