The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), within the Department of Energy (DOE), accelerates development and facilitates deployment of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. EERE, through its Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is seeking public comment on Integrated Biorefinery Lessons Learned and Best Practices.

Since 2006, many companies that specialize in converting biomass to fuels and products have taken the next step to build and operate integrated pilot, demonstration, and commercial scale facilities. During the design, financing, and construction of these projects many lessons learned and best practices have been developed. BETO compiles and updates the lesson learned and best practices information from its portfolio of integrated biorefinery projects as they move forward towards completion.
