Michigan’s Opportunity

Michigan ranks 23rd in total land area, but has the 5th most timberland in the United States.  Sustainably and responsibly managed, our forests can help enable a low carbon future through traditional and  innovative forest biomaterials that connect to mobility, chemistry, and other sectors.

Who We Are 

We are a growing coalition of stakeholders across industry, academia, and government dedicated to the responsible and sustainable utilization of our forests for an improved quality of life in Michigan. Join us!

What We’re Doing

MiFBI is pushing forward progress toward circular bioeconomy through educational efforts throughout the state. We have strategically focused on areas important to Michigan communities and coincide with emerging technologies including Kraft lignin innovation, wood recycling, and mass timber buildings.
