As the bioenergy industry begins to advance commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol technologies, BETO wants to identify the next step(s) in drop-in hydrocarbon biofuel production. This workshop is intended to discuss, reassess, and prioritize demonstration and deployment efforts needed to realize affordable, scalable, and sustainable hydrocarbon biofuels. The workshop will convene university, national laboratory, industry, advocacy, government and other stakeholders to consider the following questions:
- What is the state of technology regarding the deployment of hydrocarbon biofuels, as well as supportive bioproducts and biopower?
- What are the current technical, conversion, feedstock and logistics, and market barriers to deploying hydrocarbon biofuels?
- What are priority strategies for overcoming such technical barriers?
These discussions will inform DOE's demonstration and deployment strategy, Start Printed Page 6579and the results will be presented at a breakout session during the annual Biomass 2014 conference July 29-30th. The workshop will include sessions on past demonstration and deployment successes, lessons learned, goals, research strategies, and facilitated breakout sessions.
