Abstract english

Bioenergy is booming around the world and with the expansion comes exciting opportunities and some disturbing risks. Learning about bioenergy – from technologies, to resources, to policies – is important to the success and sustainability of the bioeconomy. This interactive guide opens the door to understanding and engaging in the transition from the fossil-based economy to a bio-based economy. The opportunities, benefits and risks associated with the rapidly expanding bioeconomy, and particularly bioenergy, demand greater attention and scrutiny.
