The plan aims to reduce the amount of foreign oil imported to the U. These numbers are used within oil companies but not usually published. Cellulosic Feedstock: The inedible cellulose which comprises most plants and trees. Uranium is used in many nuclear power plants.

Cellulosic Biomass: Fuel produced from wood, grasses, or the non-edible parts of plants that is mainly comprised of cellulose. Reserve Growth: When an oil or gas field is first discovered, reserve estimates tend to be low. The most prominent example of this are natural gas co-generation plants which first feed fuel into a gas turbine. For example an average wind turbine's name-plate capacity is 2 Megawatts.
