Webinar: Biomass and the Military
Sponsored by EERE Bioenergy Technologies Office
May 29, 2013
The Energy Department will present a live webcast titled “Biomass and the Military” on Wednesday, May 29, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Central Daylight Time (rescheduled from April 25). The Energy Department’s Bioenergy Technologies Office staff members will discuss the joint efforts between the Energy Department and the U.S. Navy to use biopower and biofuels in military vehicles. The webinar will provide an overview and recent updates on the plans and goals laid out by the Defense Production Act and the innovative pilot- and demonstration-scale funding opportunity. Both efforts will develop novel processes and provide opportunities to prepare for eventual commercialization, helping the Energy Department meet its goals of creating reliable, sustainable, domestic biofuels to increase U.S. energy security.
