BioFuelNet is heading back to school to get young men and women excited about biofuels. The organization is partnering with Talk Energy Week to participate in panel discussions at schools in eight Canadian cities. The discussions, targeted at grades 11 and 12 and reaching more than 1800 students, will include information on how to develop sustainable advanced biofuels. Each participating class will be sent a series of educational infographics illustrating various types of biofuels, where they come from and how they are made.
“As our use of fossil fuels is one of the major contributors to climate change, rethinking the energy sector will be a crucial undertaking for the next generation of decision-makers – many of which are currently in high school and beginning to learn about alternative energy solutions,” said Dr. Donald L. Smith, CEO & Scientific Director of BioFuelNet.
In addition, BioFuelNet has released an animated short film highlighting how Canadian scientists and students are working together through BioFuelNet to solve global environmental issues.
