CAST rolls out biofuel commentaries in New Orleans
Date:10/26/2007

The Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST) will make three presentations in New Orleans on Monday Nov. 5 as part of the Annual Meetings of the American Society of Agronomy (ASA), Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), and Soil Science Society of America (SSSA). The presentations include the roll-out of two new CAST Commentaries on biofuel byproducts and ethanol production and a presentation outlining CASTs resources for gathering, compiling, and communicating the latest science-based information on agricultural issues.

November 5, 2007 3:253:55 p.m.Room 206, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center

As part of the discussion session How Do We Plan to Meet the Demand, CAST will introduce its new Commentary, Convergence of Agriculture and Energy: II. Producing Cellulosic Biomass for Biofuels, prepared by a Task Force chaired by Dr. Steven Fales, Iowa State University, Ames. This new CAST Commentary covers several critical questions, including: What issues should be evaluated in a realistic appraisal of current and future feedstock supplies? What production methods should be used to maximize agronomic systems? What characteristics should distinguish crops developed specifically for production of biomass? What improvements in the feedstock supply system will most likely lead to enhanced conversion, and in turn, create revenue? And, What areas should be emphasized in educating the public on the comprehensive principles of biomass-to-ethanol production? The paper will be presented by Dr. Wally Wilhelm, USDAARS, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Task Force author.

November 5, 2007 5:005:30 p.m.Room 206, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center

Immediately following the Biomass Working Group session, CAST will roll out its new Commentary, Biofuel Feedstocks: The Risk of Future Invasions, prepared by a Task Force chaired by Dr. Joseph DiTomaso, University of California-Davis. In an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emission
