The CAER is investigating using algae to reduce carbon dioxide from power plants by growing algae to convert CO2 to biomass. This and several other biomass issues were discussed during a Center-organized Biomass to Energy short course held April 14th at the Regional Enterprise Center in West Liberty, where CAER has a regional office.
The 60+ attendees learned about environmental topics ranging from forestry biomass to the economics of the burgeoning industry. Instructors included experts from CAER, the UK Dept. of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, Moore Ventures, LLC, and the USDA. The Chair of the event was Mark Crocker, Associate Director of the Biofuels and Environmental Catalysis group at CAER.
