Addressing government programs to accelerate bioenergy.

In Florida, Biofuels Digest announced that US Navy Director for Operation Energy Chris Tindal, USDA Eenrgy Policy director Harry Baumes, DOE Biomass Energy Technologies Office director Jonathan Male and ARPA-E program manage Jonathan Burbaum will present addresses at ABLC 2014’s – addressing the topic of developing new technologies and opportunities for commercialization at competitive prices with the military as a customer.

“Government support is key to early-stage industry – petroleum in another age, biofuels now — whether it is in funding basic research, providing policies that encourage fuels diversification, or as a leading customer for new fuels,” said Biofuels Digest editor & publisher Jim Lane. “But those opportunities do not represent a hand-out — they are a hand-up for technologies than can leverage private investment to bring cost-competitive fuels and chemicals to market. This group of speakers has no peer in taking project developers through the opportunities.”

ABLC 2014 — a gathering of the leading advanced processing technologies, financiers, policymakers, media and suppliers — will be held April 21-23 in Washington DC. More than 100 CEOs are expected to be on the floor to network, build supply chains, and chart trends and opportunities for the upcoming year.
