The US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) will hold four alternative fuel workshops over the next three weeks.
The Demonstration and Deployment Strategy Workshop will be held 12–13 March at Argonne National Laboratory’s Advanced Photon Source conference center outside of Chicago, Illinois. This workshop will discuss, reassess, and prioritize demonstration and deployment efforts needed for the production of affordable, scalable, and sustainable drop-in hydrocarbons.
To support research and development planning efforts within the thermochemical conversion program, the Bioenergy Technologies Office is hosting a Biomass Indirect Liquefaction (IDL) Workshop on 20–21M arch in Golden, Colorado.
The Algal Biofuels Strategy Workshop will be held 26–27 March in Charleston, South Carolina. This workshop will focus on research and developments needed to achieve renewable algae-based biofuels.
The Bio-Oil Co-Processing: Expanding the Refinery Supply System Workshop will be held on 3 April in New Orleans, Louisiana. This workshop will explore the potential to partner renewable technologies with conventional petroleum refining by considering biomass-derived oils as an additional feedstock. Participants will be engaged in discussions about the potential advantages, disadvantages, and challenges of bio-oil integration in the current US petroleum refinery infrastructure.
