On September 24, researchers from around the country will be gathering for the tenth annual Bioenergy Feedstock Symposium, held at our very own University of Illinois (the I-Hotel, to be precise). This year’s theme is “The Future of Feedstocks” and the discussion will focus on what can and will be done regarding plant-based energy sources, from the lab, to the field, to the legislative chamber. Speakers include environment lawyer Ingrid G. Anderson, researchers such as Dr. Jeff Klingenberg (Repreve Renewables, LLC) and Dr. Erik Sacks (UIUC), and policy analyst Dr. Lauren Quinn (UIUC). The following day, the annual Energy Farm Field Day will be held out at the Energy Farm on Race Street. This event is free to attend.
