BETO Workshop: Biofuels and Bioproducts from Wet and Gaseous Waste Streams
On June 6–7, 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) will sponsor a workshop to advance the understanding of current market barriers and opportunities for increasing the deployment of biofuels and bioproducts manufactured from wet and gaseous waste streams.
Algae cultivation can be used to consume waste carbon dioxide from power generation or other industries, as well as wastewater from a variety of sources. The workshop will be an excellent chance to give BETO input on how algae can play a role in waste-to-energy conversion.
The event’s primary purpose is to elicit stakeholder input about the following topic areas:
- Key factors in feedstock disposition decision making
- Critical biofuel and bioproduct customer considerations
- Next steps for overcoming challenges and advancing commercialization.
