The U.S. Department of Energy has announced its Biomass Research and Development Technical Advisory Committee is scheduled to meet on Nov. 19-20 in Washington, D.C. The event is open to the public.

The committee aims to advise the USDA and DOE with respect to the Biomass Initiative and evaluate and make recommendations to the Biomass Research and Development Board. The November meeting aims to develop advice and guidance that promotes research and development leading to the production of biobased fuels and biobased products. The tentative agenda will include an update on USDA and DOE biomass research and development activities and presentations from government and industry that provide insights on the intersection on forest health and bioenergy growth.

Members of the public are welcome to observe the business of the committee. Additional information on how to attend the meeting or make oral statements regarding items on the agenda is available on the Federal Register website
