By U.S. Department of Energy | August 24, 2017

Did you know that one state is creating a sustainable market for bioenergy crops while saving taxpayers upwards of $43,000 per year? Or did you know that estimates show that continuing to develop our domestic biomass resources could contribute nearly $259 billion and 1.1 million jobs to the U.S. economy by 2030? 

If you want to stay up to date with the latest news and perspectives on the growing U.S. bioeconomy, we have you covered. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office is pleased to announce the official launch of its new technical blog, Bioprose: Building the Bioeconomy through Technology & Communication—your one-stop shop for the latest innovations and developments that are shaping the bioeconomy.

Bioprose is one of several communications vehicles designed to enhance BETO’s communications efforts with the biobased community, in addition to providing valuable insight into the programs and people that contribute to the success of the bioeconomy. Written by a diverse team of managers, scientists, and engineers associated with BETO, the blog posts will showcase an in-depth look at the technical details of the bioenergy advances currently supported by BETO and our partners.

The new blog will also help link industry experts with cutting-edge BETO-funded research, giving them the most up-to-date information on successful research and development and technical breakthroughs. What’s more, it will serve as a space for bioenergy industry professionals to become more aware of the capabilities of the U.S. Department of Energy’s national laboratories and their associated user facilities.

Revolutionary, sustainable bioenergy technologies will drive the emerging bioeconomy for a prosperous nation and we believe that this blog will reflect that energy and excitement.
