Renewable Energy for Water Desalination

Renewable Energy for Water Desalination

The United States has abundant agricultural and forestry resources that could be a significant resource for bioenergy. With research, land resources could be effectively used for feedstock production and still meet demand for production of other goods and services. By 2030, about 1 to 1.6 billion dry tons of sustainably available biomass could be produced annually from forestry, agricultural, and waste resources. Each feedstock can be converted into a range of fuels through various pathways.

This course presents an overview of the National Biofuels Action Plan (NBAP) which identifies important challenges to meeting the national goals set forth in the Renewable Fuel Standard. It discusses the current status and challenges related to feedstocks, distribution infrastructure, research & development, and the use of algae.
