Alaska - May 22
Ethanol From Forest Residues

"A discussion of issues and opportunities associated with using local residues to make fuel grade ethanol in Southeast Alaska."

The purpose of Alaska's second EWS Workshop is to assure that all people who may be impacted in one form or another by the construction of a cellulose-ethanol plant in the area of Ketchikan have the opportunity to gain a better understanding about it. The Mayors of both the City of Ketchikan and the Ketchikan Gateway Borough will speak at the workshop with a message of welcome to the proposed project. Unique in the fact that it is also necessary to examine the state policies for managing wood waste, Alaska's workshop will look closely at all of the areas that may benefit or need attention as steps are taken down a path to a commercial scale ethanol plant. All ethanol is imported into Alaska at this time and approximately four million gallons are needed in Anchorage to help reduce and control the city's carbon monoxide emissions. Why not produce it within the state, specifically in Ketchikan? That's exactly the question that will wrap up the Workshop… Is a Biomass Ethanol Plant Good for Southeast Alaska? The organizers of the Workshop feel it is very important to hear the ideas and opinions of everyone who will be affected. Therefore, a panel of Southeast Alaska organizations will discuss the issue with participation by all attendees encouraged.

Cape Fox Lodge in Ketchikan will be the location for the Alaska Ethanol Workshop, which will start at 8:30 am and adjourn at 3:00 pm.
