Background: To assess the current state of the science regarding lignocellulosic biofuels and identify remaining basic research challenges in establishing a viable domestic biofuels and bioproducts industry, DOE’s Office of Biological and Environmental Research convened the Bioenergy Workshop on June 23–24, 2014, in Washington, D.C. The workshop brought together 45 experts from industry, academia, and DOE national laboratories and included presentations and breakout discussions organized around the themes of (1) biomass development, (2) lignocellulose deconstruction, (3) specialty fuels, and (4) bioproduct development from biomass.
