The U.S. Department of Energy has announced its Biomass Research and Development Technical Advisory Committee will meet March 27-28 in Arlington, Virginia. The event is open to members of the public.

According to the DOE, the 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 for the two-day meeting includes updates on USDA and DOE biomass research and development activities, as well as presentations from government and industry that provide insights on the intersection of forest health and bioenergy growth.

A notice posted in the Federal Register indicates that members of the public are welcome to observe the business of the committee. Those who wish to attend the meeting and/or make oral statements regarding any of the items on the agenda must contact the DOE at least five business days prior to the meeting. Written statements can be filed with the committee either before or after the meeting. A summary of the meeting will be able for public review on the committee’s webpage.
