ISU economist appointed to biomass research committee

Iowa

Dermot Hayes has been named to the Biomass Research and Development Technical Advisory Committee, jointly administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Energy.

The committee was established by the Biomass Research and Development Act of 2000 and assists the two departments in meeting the act's "important national goals of a healthier rural economy and improved national security."

Hayes' appointment is for three years. As a member of the committee, he will advise the Biomass Research and Development Board, which coordinates research and development activities relating to biofuels. The Technical Advisory Committee lends expertise on strategic planning and direction of requests for proposals issued under the Biomass Initiative and the procedures for reviewing and evaluating the proposals.

Hayes holds the Pioneer Hi-Bred International Chair in Agribusiness. He is a professor in the economics and finance departments at Iowa State University.

The committee also helps connect federal and state agencies, agricultural producers, industry, consumers and researchers related to federal biomass research and development.
