Sunshine State Biofuels Conference

Cindy Zimmerman

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson is planning a biofuels conference to bring together the various elements critical to successful alternative energy programs to be held August 31 through September 1 in Orlando. According to an agency release, the event will serve as a forum for researchers, industry representatives and policymakers to discuss the production, distribution and use of biofuels, particularly ethanol, in Florida. The conference comes on the heels of the Florida Legislature passing comprehensive energy legislation, much of which is directed toward promoting renewable energy and providing a number of grants and incentives programs.
