4th Annual Cellulosic Biofuels Summit in DC

The 4th annual Cellulosic Biofuels Summit will be held next week at the Almas Temple Club in Washington DC, November 16 - 19. The first day will cover financing and investing, the second and third days will cover the technicals of cellulosic biofuels. The last day will look at the feedstock supply chain -- a crucial and often overlooked aspect of biomass energy. H/T Domestic Fuel

Biomass is not just about making fuels and generating power. It is also about high value chemicals, and plastics. Biomass can potentially replace up to 90% of petroleum used in making plastics. If you stop to think about all the uses of plastics these days, you will understand how significant that replacement will be.

The replacement of petroleum fuels, chemicals, and plastics by biomass products will be slow and incremental -- at first. But as techniques are perfected for all the phases of biomass energy and materials -- from investment, finance, feedstock supply and transport, production, and distribution -- the changes will come much more quickly.
