U of Illinois Sponsors Biofuels Seminars

John Davis

The University of Illinois is sponsoring a series of seminars focusing on biofuels and renewable energy.

The school’s Center for Advanced BioEnergy Research (CABER) is holding the presentations, which are open to the public, Mondays at 4 pm at the U of I Urbana-Champaign campus:

“This bioenergy seminar series provides a broad range of topics from different perspectives – academia, research, government and industry,” said Dr. Hans Blaschek, director of CABER. “We welcome anyone interested in learning more about the research and technologies presented and encourage questions and participation from the audience.”

The next one will be this coming Monday, February 22 and is entitled “Environment Enhancing Energy – Synergism of algae biofuels with waste treatment for agricultural, energy and municipal applications.” Lance Schideman, Assistant Professor, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will be the featured speaker.

As I mentioned before, the seminars will be held on successive Mondays (well, nearly every Monday) through the beginning of May at 4 pm. You can find the entire schedule here.

This seminar series is one of the required classes for students pursing a bioenergy Professional Science Master’s degree.
