... Forest Service and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory are currently updat ing bioenergy feedstock estimates in the 2005 billion-ton study. 2 The initial study suggested that about 400 million tons could be provided from wood sources -- logging residue, forest thinnings, mill residue, and urban wood wastes.

... The report suggests that 0.5 million barrels/day of gasoline equivalent can be produced by 2020 and 1.7 million barrels/day by 2035. Reaching these levels by 2020 will require increased funding for large dem onstration facilities and adoption of low-carbon fuel standards; a carbon price, or explicit carbon-reduction targets; and accelerated federal investments in these 3America's Energy Future Panel on Alternative Liquid Transportation Fuels, National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and National Research Council.

... As it is expected to take at least until 2030 to attain large-scale cellulosic fuel production, most participants agreed that meeting this goal will require the building of tens to hundreds of conversion plants, as well as associated transport and distribution infrastructure facilities.
