Planting Fuels Webinar (Dec 14)

Berkeley and UCLA Law released the report Planting Fuels: How California Can Boost Local, Low-Carbon Biofuel Production on December 2, 2015.  The report suggests policies that could boost local production of low-carbon biofuel, which can reduce emissions through shorter feedstock transportation routes, development of carbon reducing co-products like biochar compost, and reduced wildfire risk. Local production can provide jobs and revenue in otherwise economically challenged parts of the state, harvesting biofuel feedstocks from a variety of renewable sources, including corn, sugarcane and food waste, among others. 

On December 14th, from 11am to noon, we hosted a webinar featuring the following expert speakers:

  • Tim Olsen, energy and fuels program manager at the California Energy Commission
  • Lisa Mortenson, chief executive officer at Community Fuels
  • Mary Solecki, western states advocate for Environmental Entrepreneurs
