    The time is ripe for expanding bioenergy production capacity and developing a bio-based economy. Modern society has created unprecedented demands for energy and chemical products that are predominately based on geologic sources. However, there is a growing consensus that constraints on the supply of petroleum and the negative environmental consequences of burning fossil fuels require that modern societies adopt alternative sources. These alternatives must be both renewable and environmentally sustainable. Biomass is an important alternative for both energy and chemical production that meets these requirements.
