We Have
Three Goals

The Southeast Partnership for Integrated Biomass Supply Systems (IBSS) demonstrates real-world solutions towards economically and environmentally sustainable production and conversion of biomass-to-biofuel in the southeast United States (SE US). This Partnership is helping to meet the USDA goal of producing almost 50% of the next generation of biofuels in the SE US, while supporting robust and innovative research, education and extension activities.

1. Generate Solutions

Generate Solutions

Demonstrate implementable 'real-world' solutions that effectively address the economic and environmental barriers that currently limit sustainable and reliable biofuels production, while reducing deployment risks, lowering feedstock and conversion costs, and maximizing societal gains.

2. Develop New Tools

Develop New Tools

Develop, validate and utilize new tools and metrics for effective decision-making in the selection and deployment of biomass-to-biofuels production that addresses our national energy needs and revitalizes rural economies.

3. Integrate Education

Integrate Education

Provide creditable, impactful, and integrated education, extension and outreach (E2O) programs and communication tools that result in a well-trained workforce, and landowners, stakeholders and policy makers with the knowledge necessary to thoughtfully enable a biofuels industry.
