DOE Ethanol Workshop Series

Ethanol Workshop Series News - July 2000
A Newsletter about the DOE/RBEP Ethanol Workshop Series (EWS) activities


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)/Regional Biomass Energy Program (RBEP) Ethanol Workshop Series (EWS), sponsored by the U.S. DOE Office of Fuels Development (OFD), is in its second year. The EWS News is an electronic newsletter that serves as a tool to keep planning committee members and supporters abreast of activities occurring in participating EWS states. The EWS is a groundbreaking grassroots program to inspire interest in near-term ethanol production from cellulosic biomass materials.

1999 was the first year of the EWS. Workshops were held in Alabama, Alaska, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The 2000 EWS includes Colorado, Indiana, New York, Ohio, Oregon/Washington, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Texas. The 2000 EWS state Workshop agendas and 1999 state follow up workshop agendas will be posted at www.bbiethanol.com and, individually, on most state bioenergy websites.

States that participated in the first series of ethanol workshops have the opportunity to build upon their success through additional funding for follow up activities. 1999 EWS states may submit proposals of up to $5,000 to their respective RBEP Managers. All proposed follow up activities must be completed in this fiscal year, which ends September 30th Your proposed activities may include a second ethanol workshop, development of educational materials, resource assessment or feasibility study, or special meetings with stakeholders. Your RBEP manager can assist you with the guidelines.

Anyone who would like to receive the EWS News in hard copy form rather than electronic, please contact Angela Graf at adamman@bbibiofuels.com and we'll place you on the hard copy mailing list.
