Southeast Partnership for Integrated Biomass Supply Systems

IBSS was developed in 2010 in response to the USDA Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) Request for Applications for Regional Coordinated Agricultural Projects (CAP). The AFRI Sustainable Bioenergy Program priorities include sustainable agriculture, forestry, renewable energy, and rural communities and entrepreneurship. In addition, AFRI is looking for "translational research and development" that supports these priorities and delivery of "science based knowledge to people". The University of Tennessee, along with multiple academic and industrial partners, submitted the IBSS Partnership proposal in alignment with USDA AFRI CAP purpose and priorities
