Feedstock symposium looks at feedstock sources

By | October 14, 2008
The Center for Evergreen Energy is hosting a symposium focused on feedstocks for biodiesel. Taking place at the prestigious Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, the symposium will address current challenges in biofuels feedstock research and production. Roger N. Beachy, president of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, will facilitate the Nov. 21 event.

Biodiesel producers, marketers and feedstock producers will hear from presenters including Monsanto, NASA, Enterprise-Rent-a-Car Institute and the National Biodiesel Board, as well as scientists from the Center for Evergreen Energy and Danforth. Participants will address feedstock production, oil content and innovation. For the purpose of the symposium, feedstocks will be separated into three categories: algae, near-term and long-term feedstocks. At the end of the day, policy recommendations will be provided that will help fulfill future biodiesel goals.

"Increased availability of diversified feedstocks used in biodiesel is vital to the future growth of the biodiesel industry," said J. Alan Weber, economic consultant for the NBB. "This symposium grew out of a need to explore alternatives and educate the biodiesel industry on the short-and long-term future of feedstocks."

The Center for Evergreen Energy is a think-tank for biofuels advancement formed by the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center and the St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association. The center's mission is to make "credible, innovative and long-lasting contributions to the nation's renewable energy industry."
