The bioenergy mailing list ( is hosted by the Center for Renewable Energy & Sustainable Technologies(CREST) for industry, academia and government to discuss biomass production and conversion to energy.

Current subscribers to the list are from 21 countries and engage in the research and commercial production of biomass crops and fuels, the conversion of biomass to more that 200 MWe in operating plants, the construction and testing of commercial scale pilot facilities for combustion, gasification and anaerobic digestion, testing and analysis of environmental impacts for bioenergy, and promotion and planning of future bioenergy resources. Current topics of discussion and pending issues are listed below.
