[Press Release] According to an international report on bioenergy and land use, informed management of bioenergy crops can actually alleviate factors contributing to food insecurity, as well as provide practical avenues to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote sustainable energy production, and preserve biodiversity. The Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE), an international nongovernmental organization, published the SCOPE Bioenergy and Sustainability Report, titled Bioenergy and Sustainability: Bridging the Gaps, in April 2015. The Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) funded the work of several national laboratory researchers who contributed to the report.

The 21-chapter report examines global agricultural trends and concludes that land availability is not a limiting factor in the expansion of bio-based fuels and products.
