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.
