New Thematic Areas, Biomass Sources and Updated Toolbox

We have updated the BiomassNet platform to broaden its thematic scope, biomass sources and resource categories. If you are a registered member of BiomassNet, these changes may have affected your personal account information and any resources you may have uploaded in the Toolbox.

To verify your account information, please visit your BiomassNet account and check if you need to update the Thematic Areas and Biomass Sources (formerly known as Crops) that you are interested in. Does one of the newly established Thematic Areas or Biomass Sources also match your profile? Let the BiomassNet community know with your update! Further, please verify if your resources in the Toolbox are tagged correctly according to Resource Category, Thematic Area and Biomass Source.
