Description: The BioEnergy Conference will be a gathering of technical, commercial, and public policy experts to review state of the art bioenergy technology and discuss a future road-map to expand the use of locally derived, clean, and sustainable Michigan bioenergy resources. The State of Michigan expends over $30B per year on out of state energy supply and fuels. Although much attention has been paid to biomass derived transportation fuels such as biodiesel and ethanol, roughly half of Michigan’s energy expenditures occur in the non-transportation sectors. This annual $15B in outflow to non-Michigan coal, gas, and other energy suppliers can be addressed in large part by the vast biomass resources within our state. Come to the Michigan BioEnergy Conference to network with experts in conventional and emerging technologies which will help you capitalize upon Michigan’s vast biomass resource, creating jobs, sustainable businesses, reduce greenhouse gases, while tapping into this revenue stream leaving our state each and every year.
