Forward in Energy Forum – Oct. 24

Researchers at the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC), based at UW–Madison, have been working for almost a decade to enable a sustainable bioenergy marketplace comprised of specialty fuels and valuable bioproducts. These products, made from next-generation bioenergy crops such as switchgrass – and grown on non-agricultural “marginal” lands – will be the product of unique partnerships between the agricultural community, scientists, and industry partners. Join them to discuss the last ten years of bioenergy research at GLBRC – and what the next five will bring.

The forum will take place Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 4:30 – 5:45 p.m. in Room 1115 of the Wisconsin Energy Institute.

Presenters include:

  • George Huber, Professor, Chemical and Biological Engineering
  • Andrew Held, Senior Director of Deployment and Engineering, Virent, Inc.
  • Mark Staudt, Licensing Associate,Technology Commercialization at WARF

The forum will be moderated by Tim Donohue, WEI Interim Director, Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center Director and professor of bacteriology.
