Abstract:

This report provides a Guidebook and Toolkit that describes the state of the practice of using highway rights-of-way (ROWs) vegetation for carbon sequestration and biomass generation for use as feedstock for biopower and biofuel production. This Guidebook merges the knowledge of market conditions and regulations for environmental commodities that are energy- and/or greenhouse-gas based, regulations governing the highway ROWs for commercial or revenue purposes, the best practices of highway vegetation management and agronomic practices for raising feedstock crops for carbon sequestration, biopower, and biofuels. The Feasibility Toolkit, available on CD-ROM (CRP-CD-165), may assist users with modeling a proposed project’s financial viability that the user can modify to develop a customized analysis.
