The North Carolina Biomass Roadmap: Recommendations for Fossil Fuel Displacement through Biomass Utilization is a 2007 report that contains recommendations that should be carried out by 2017 to increase biomass utilization in North Carolina. The stated goal is that by 2017, North Carolina should displace 10% of its gasoline and diesel needs and 7% of its power needs using North Carolina bio-based fuels and power.
FOR TEACHERS this report and its appendices represent a resource for NC-specific biomass data and graphics, such as a list of Key Biomass Resources in North Carolina as well as a list of biomass/ biofuel plants in NC and a glossary of key terms.
A four page abridged summary of this report is also available.
A printer friendly Biomass and Bioenergy Glossary is also available from the North Carolina Cooperative Extension.
