DOE Announces Webinars on Biofuel Feedstocks and the Climate Benefits of Bioenergy

EERE offers webinars to the public on a range of subjects, from adopting the latest energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies, to training for the clean energy workforce.  Webinars are free; however, advanced registration is typically required.

Upcoming Webinars

April 20: Live Webinar on How Feedstock Types Affect Biofuels Conversion

Webinar Sponsor:  Bioenergy Technology Office

The Energy Department will present a live a webinar titled “Field-to-Fleet Webinar: How Does Feedstock Type Affect Biofuels Conversion?” on Wednesday, April 20, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The webinar will focus on the Bioenergy Technologies Office’s (BETO’s) Field-to-Fleet project and its outcomes to date. Field-to-Fleet is part of BETO’s larger Thermochemical Feedstock Interface Project and is a joint Idaho National Laboratory (INL), National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) project designed to investigate how feedstock type affects various thermochemical biofuels-conversion processes. The multi-year project has quantified the impacts that feedstock type has on the hydrotreating of pyrolysis oil, and researchers are now ready to apply the methodology to other thermochemical conversion pathways. Join us to learn about Field-to-Fleet outcomes, impacts, and opportunities for partnership.

We will feature laboratory project leads Tyler Westover (INL), Daniel Howe (PNNL), and Daniel Carpenter (NREL), as well as BETO Conversion Technology Manager Prasad Gupte.

April 21:  Live Webinar on Bioenergy—Is It Good for the Climate?

Webinar Sponsor:  Bioenergy Technology Office

The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled “Bioenergy—Is It Good for the Climate?” on Wednesday, April 21,  at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The webinar is part of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Bioenergy Webinar Series. Attendees will learn about the climate benefits of bioenergy and how it can achieve a net reduction of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

The webinar will be presented by Annette Cowie, who is the principal research scientist of climate at the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries. Dr. Cowie is also the task leader for IEA Bioenergy Task 38 on Climate Change Effects of Biomass and Bioenergy Systems. IEA Bioenergy is an organization set up in 1978 by IEA with the aim of improving cooperation and information exchange between countries that have national programs in bioenergy research, development, and deployment.
