DOE Ethanol Workshop Series

ETHANOL WORKSHOP SERIES: ALASKA

May 22, 2001
8:30 am to 3:00 pm

WestCoast Cape Fox Lodge
800 Venetia Way
Ketchikan, Alaska

Join a discussion about the potential significance of an ethanol production facility locating in Southeast Alaska that may use wood residues as a feedstock. Ethanol production holds the potential for creating jobs, benefiting rural economic development, and reducing wood residue management problems. Currently over four million gallons of ethanol are imported to Alaska annually and blended with Anchorage gasoline in order to improve air quality.

Public officials, stakeholders and the general public are invited.

Sponsored by:

Alaska Energy Authority
