Our friends at the National Biodiesel Board are hosting a webinar on how making biodiesel from co-products of food production affects the cost of protein in the food supply on Monday, April 29, 2013 3:30 PM – 4:45 PM CDT:
We’ll also examine how to grow the current biodiesel feedstock supply responsibly and sustainably in the context of federal policies like the Renewable Fuels Standard. In addition, we’ll hear about some promising new research from the Danforth Plant Science Center which shows an increase in soybean oil yield, and its corresponding effect on protein.
Just how far can American agriculture take us in meeting our food, fuel and feed needs? Join this lively discussion on how integrated food and energy production can help agriculture live up to its full potential.
