Frontiers in Bioenergy Symposium May 24th - 25th Stewart Center, Room 218 - Purdue University
April 14, 2010
Please join the Frontiers in Bioenery Symposium hosted jointly by two recently funded DOE-Office of Science "Energy Frontier Research Center" (C3Bio and IACT) and sponsored by Purdue University. The 5th Annual Symposium will cover an overview of the agronomic, fuel infrastructure and economic context of biofuels production, and focus on second-generation and third-generation (drop-in) advanced biofuels from biological and chemical/thermal conversion pathways. Purdue is excited to welcome Bruce Dale a Professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science from Michigan State as the keynote speaker. Other speakers include Billy Glover, Boeing commercial Airplanes; Edward Lyford-Pike, Cummins; Mike Himmell, National Renewal Energy Laboratory; Hans Blaschek, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Robert Brown, Iowa State University; Jim Dumesic, Institute for Atom-efficient Chemical Transformation.

Groups of high schoolers eagerly lined up Tuesday morning at Purdue University to test how well their handcrafted wind turbines would perform when stacked against the power of four fans. The kids were competing to create a turbine that would generate the most energy as a part of a challenge for the Duke Energy Academy at Purdue. The annual academy, now in its fifth year, brings in U.S. high school students to learn about renewable energy with hopes they'll be inspired to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields and solve energy challenges. "We want these students to be the leaders of tomorrow," said Pankaj Sharma, managing director of the Purdue Energy Center and Global Sustainability Institute. The academy lasts throughout the week and is hosting 52 students and 27 teachers from mainly Indiana schools, though about 20 percent come from outside states, said Tolu Omotoso, a civil engineering graduate student and coordinator for the academy.Read Full Story
