Mr. Williams addressed a full-house at Iowa State University’s Gold Room on Thursday, July 11 about biorefinery economics and their implications for the advanced biofuels industry.

Sharing his research, Mr. Williams showed his results of the impact of production yield, feedstock sourcing, and specific production facility cost – all important factors in predicting unit production cost for commercial advanced biofuels.
