BBI International Inc. will present the leading edge of advanced biofuels at the Advanced Biofuels Workshop and Trade Show, which will be held September 28-30 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The federal renewable fuels standard requires 21 billion gallons of advanced biofuels to be produced by 2022. The conference will address where and how these biofuels will be produced and marketed.

Leading companies in biochemical and thermochemical conversion of biomass into fuel are invited to present how they have brought their technologies to the edge of commercial viability.

Workshops will focus on a number of topics, including future feedstock options, managing feedstock logistics, markets for advanced biofuels. One workshop will give investors, project developers, engineering companies, technology providers, feedstock suppliers and policymakers a glimpse at the future of biofuel technology.
