US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has released a report which provides a roadmap on how America can meet the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2). All regions can contribute to meeting America’s long term energy needs. Secretary Vilsack commented: “Energy derived from woody biomass, switchgrass and other sources has enormous potential benefits for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, developing clean, home-grown energy, and providing economic opportunities for rural America. Markets for woody biomass can also bolster forest restoration activities on both public and private lands, improving the ecological health of our forests and reducing the impacts of global climate change.” Source: WSAV
