      General Session Preview
      Commercial Scale Advanced Biofuels Production: The Future is Here
      Wednesday, November 28 | 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

      Commercial volumes of ethanol and advanced biofuels like cellulosic ethanol and biomass-based diesel are all outlined provisions of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. This provision formed a bedrock for the industry over which commercial capacity is now being built. As much as these mandated volumes urge the build-out of the advanced biofuels industry, meeting them and cementing overall confidence in the sector’s time has come. Populated by CEOs from advanced biofuels companies in various stages of development and operation, this panel will examine not only the race to bring new capacity on–line, but also to maintain and grow the volumes of biofuels already delivering commercial scale volumes.
