CAAFI announces alt fuels webinar series

The Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative R&D Team has annoucned the initiation of its new Seminars on Alternatives to Petroleum – Jet (SOAP-Jet) webinar discussion series to promote communication among members of the alternative jet fuel R&D community.  These webinars are intended to provide a forum for discussion of key challenges, sharing of strategies, and communication among stakeholders about new technical or business approaches.  Each webinar will include approximately 45 minutes of presentation and approximately 15 minutes of discussion and Q&A.
 
The first webinar series will focus on the recipients of the Dept. of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (DOE EERE) CHASE grants to “accelerate next generation biofuels.”   The awardees each have unique technologies to facilitate the conversion and refining of biofuels, and we look forward to hearing from each of them about their distinct perspectives.
