New Uses Council


"New Uses Council (NUC) is a dynamic and expanding, 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization dedicated to the development and commercialization of biobased products. These products are made from traditional and new agricultural and forestry crops and residues; rights-of-way, park, yard and garden trimmings; the clean biomass portion of municipal wastes; and, when needed, aquatic biomass grown in an environmentally enhancing manner. NUC maintains that biobased products reduce dependence on fossil energy, particularly imported oil, and thereby enhance national, energy, homeland, economic and environmental security. Importantly, biobased products put farmers, ranchers, dairymen and foresters in the forefront in stabilizing greenhouse gas emissions while improving the economy in rural and urban communities."
