POET to Keynote at Wisconsin Bioenergy Summit

Joanna Schroeder

Next month, Wisconsin will host a summit to focus on the state’s future in bioenergy. The Wisconsin Bioenergy Summit, hosted by the Wisconsin Bioenergy Initiative (WBI), will be held on October 14, 2010. This year’s event will focus on fueling Wisconsin’s future and will feature presentations from multidisciplinary university experts, state policymakers and innovators from the private sector.

One of this  year’s keynote speakers at the Summit is Greg Hartgraves, POET’s Senior Director of Research. Hartgraves will be discussing the progress in advancing both cellulosic and corn ethanol and how they will work together in the future to make ethanol in more sustainable. Hartgraves will speak at 3:45 pm at the Montona Terrace in Madison, Wisconsin.

Last month, Project Liberty, POET’s first cellulosic pilot plant that when in production will produce 25 million gallons per year of ethanol from light corn stover and corn cobs, began the world’s largest biomass harvest.

Registration for the event is open for both professionals and students and is $25 for professionals and free for students. Click here to learn more.
