Israel’s BioEnergy Leaders Meet for Two Days of Deliberations with U.S. Government Counterparts - Following Wednesday White House Briefing
Date:4/18/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 18, 2013

After a briefing by senior White House staff on Wednesday, following their arrival in the U.S., an Israeli delegation of top academic and industrial biofuels research scientists and innovators, and Israeli government program managers, is participating in two days of deliberations today and tomorrow (Thursday and Friday) with their American counterparts from the U.S. Departments of Energy and Agriculture, and the Navy, FAA and the private sector. They are discussing opportunities for U.S.-Israel collaboration on research and innovation to produce alternative fuels (“advanced biofuels”) that can substitute for petroleum-based gasoline, diesel oil and aviation fuel currently produced from imported oil. Following the meetings in Washington, they will travel to DOE labs in Oak Ridge Tennessee and in California to meet with more than 50 U.S. scientists and energy program managers in those locations.

The elite Israeli delegation was chosen to participate in this dialogue through a competitive process, The U.S.-Israel Bio-Energy Challenge, in which the initial selection of participants was made in Israel and the final participants were selected with input from the U.S. agencies. The competition and subsequent discussion process is being sponsored and coordinated by two U.S. not-for-profit organizations, The Israel Energy Partnership (TIEP) and the U.S.-Israel Science and Technology Foundation (USISTF) and by the Israeli Industry Center for R&D (MATIMOP) on behalf of the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) in the Ministry for Trade and Industry.

Project sponsors stress the importance of finding alternatives to petroleum imports at a time when high oil prices once again are a drag on the economy and some oil-producing nations are using oil revenues to develop weapons that threaten their neighbors: “The one-half trillion dollars of oil revenue OPEC nations collect each year
