Biomass Feedstocks for Energy Markets

Welcome to the Home of IEA Bioenergy Task 43

We support sound bioenergy development driven by well-informed decisions in the forestry, agriculture and energy sectors as well as in investment institutions and government agencies.  We address critical issues for deployment of sustainable biomass and bioenergy supply chains, including social, economic and environmental outcomes of feedstock production and supply.
