Abstract

Iowa is well positioned to lead the growth of the bioeconomy in the Midwest. However, a well-defined strategy is needed to take full advantage of the opportunities presented to the state. The primary need is an action plan to collectively and holistically address the broad range of environmental and economic topics associated with the biomass industry. The IEDA, in partnership with the Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) and under the leadership of then Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds, released a new energy plan for the state of Iowa in late 2016. The Iowa Energy Plan was created to provide a clear path to ensure Iowans have access to affordable, reliable, sustainable energy, while recognizing energy’s strategic importance to Iowa’s economy. A key focus area identified in the plan is Iowa’s abundance of biomass with the potential to benefit economically and environmentally by further realizing the value-added attributes of biomass in the development of bioenergy, biofuels and biochemicals.
