The Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is hosting a Demonstration and Deployment strategy workshop on March 12-13 2014, at Argonne National Laboratory’s APS Conference Center in Lemont, Illinois.

As the bioenergy industry advances commercial scale cellulosic ethanol production, BETO will identify the next step(s) in drop-in hydrocarbon biofuel production. This workshop intends to discuss, reassess, and prioritize the demonstration and deployment efforts needed to realize affordable, scalable, and sustainable production of hydrocarbon biofuels.

University, national laboratory, industry, advocacy, government and other stakeholders will consider the following questions:

♦  What is the state of technology regarding the deployment of hydrocarbon biofuels, as well as supportive bioproducts and biopower?
♦  What are the current technical, conversion, feedstock and logistics, and market barriers to deploying hydrocarbon biofuels?
♦  What are priority strategies for overcoming such technical barriers?

Workshop Location: Argonne National Lab
9700 S. Cass Ave.
Bldg 402 -- APS Conference Center
