The Midwest’s abundant agricultural and forestry biomass residuals has the potential to provide new opportunities for economic development, energy security, and environmental conservation. “Harnessing the Power of Biomass Residuals: Opportunities and Challenges for Midwestern Renewable Energy,” The Chicago Council on Global Affairs’ newest Heartland Paper, examines these opportunities and identifies key challenges limiting current biomass energy technologies. The report concludes with a framework for making better use of these residuals in the region. The report was written by Chicago Council Senior Fellow on Energy and Climate Steve Brick, and produced in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Development Agency. It will be available for download on the globalmidwest.org website on Tuesday, November 29, 2011.
