As I mentioned earlier, I’ll be at the Advanced Biofuels Leadership Conference at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center near Washington, D.C. on Monday. And I just got this breaking news item in my email box from our friend, Jim Lane from Biofuels Digest:
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will announce that the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Federal Aviation Administration, along with other partners, are extending an agreement to help develop viable renewable fuels for the aviation industry.
Secretary Vilsack and Secretary LaHood will both deliver remarks at the 2013 Advanced Biofuels Leadership Conference. This extension follows the initial success of the 2010-2012 “Farm to Fly” partnership to strengthen research and capacity building for aviation biofuels.
I’ll be there to get their comments on this agreement and more! Hope to see you at the ABLC!
