[GreenYes] Cellulosic Ethanol Technology Forum, 2/15, Diamond Bar from South Coast AQMD

>Date: Thu, 01 Feb 2007 16:22:36 -0800
>From: wfell@no.address
>Subject: arbcombo -- Cellulosic Ethanol Technology Forum
>Cellulosic Ethanol Technology Forum and Roundtable Discussion
>February 15 (Thursday), 2007
>9 am to 4 pm
>South Coast AQMD Headquarters Auditorium
>21865 Copley Drive
>Diamond Bar, CA 91765
>Transportation sources in the South Coast Air Basin are
>substantial contributors of air pollution and toxic risk
>affecting the residents of the South Coast Air Basin, primarily
>because the fuel used in transportation sources is based on
>petroleum, such as gasoline and diesel. Such overwhelming
>dependency on a single fuel makes California and this Basin
>vulnerable to supply shortages and consequent severe price
>hikes, that in turn could seriously affect California's ability
>to move goods and people. Alternative fuels, such as ethanol,
>can reduce this dependency on petroleum and also enable this
>agency to meet its targeted air quality goals. Twenty percent
>of the ethanol currently produced in the country is consumed in
>California. However, production of this corn-based ethanol is
>ultimately limited by a number of factors. To be sustainable in
>the long-term and on a large scale, it is imperative that ethanol
>be produced from forest and agricultural residues such as corn
>stalks and rice stalks, and other plant materials including
>grasses and wood grown for this purpose.
>The South Coast AQMD is pleased to host this one-day technology
>forum and roundtable discussion of the current and upcoming
>technologies which could increase production of ethanol from
>biomass sources of waste cellulose. The morning will consist of
>formal presentations by a panel of national technical experts on
>the production of cellulosic ethanol. In the afternoon, there
>will be a roundtable discussion among the panelists to
>facilitate a candid exchange of views and suggestions. This
>roundtable will be moderated by Dr. Charles Wyman, Ford Motor
>Company Professor, University of California, Riverside. Members
>of the public will also be able to ask questions of the
>Technology Forum/Roundtable participants.
>The South Coast AQMD encourages anyone interested in this topic
>to attend this forum free of charge. This forum will also be
>webcast live, and copies of the webcast and of all the
>presentations will be posted on the AQMD's Technology
>Forum/Roundtable web page at:
