New York State and the Northeast (NE) Region stakeholders' interests in the evolving bioenergy and
bioproducts economy are driven by a number of diverse issues including rural economic development,
regional energy security and climate change mitigation. There are a number of federal policies that have
been put into place to respond to these drivers, such the Renewable Fuels Standard that mandates the
production of 16 billion gallons for cellulosic biofuel use by 2022. Such a rapid expansion in biofuels
production will require large increases in feedstock production. It will necessarily be transformational as
we in the NE seek to do our part in securing our national energy security. In addition, vibrant feedstock
acquisitions and feedstock conversion industries must be developed based on the NE resource base and
infrastructure and these industries will generate greatly needed green jobs. Cornell researchers and
educators are doing their part to catalyze the development of sustainable agriculturally-based bio-
industries through innovative research programs, and by educating the next generation of young
innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders. This document provides brief snapshots of some selective Cornell
biofuels research, education and outreach programs.
