The topics covered in this meeting will include the most promising avenues for bioenergy production. Talks will cover state of the art research on cellulosic ethanol, next generation fermentation of biofuels, algal biofuels, and the development of new biomass feedstocks. Talks will also cover economic and environmental considerations of biofuels technologies, as well as integration of biofuels into the existing energy infrastructure. As we enter an era of decreasing fossil fuel use we need to understand the opportunities and challenges of building a new biofuels industry. Significant economic and logistic challenges need to be met, while retaining the most environmentally beneficial practices. This meeting will bring together academic and industrial scientist with planning and policy makers all working to identify the most promising avenues to a viable biofuels future.
