Bioenergy Focus of Free Workshops in Washington State

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Washington state Department of Ecology is sponsoring two free one-day workshops focusing on bioenergy production, regulation and use in Washington state. The workshops are scheduled for Feb. 9 in Seattle at the Seattle Center, and Feb. 16 in Moses Lake at the Best Western Lake Inn. The workshops run from 8:30 to 4 p.m. each day. Participants will learn about proposed state legislation and policy issues, including the renewable fuel standard and the “bioenergy road map.” Technical aspects of biodiesel production — materials, processes, byproducts, wastes, emissions and discharges — and regulatory requirements are also on the workshop agenda. Other topics covered will include biodiesel fuel quality and performance, and government technical, permitting and financial assistance. The workshops are free. However, registration is due by Feb. 6. For more information, contact Cathy Buller, at 206-352-2050 or by e-mail to [email protected] Courtesy of TargetedNews.com
