Crop Residues for Advanced Biofuels-
Exploring Soil Carbon Effects
August 15-17, 2017
Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel, California
Hosted by ASA, CSSA and SSSA
Significant scientific uncertainty exists about crop residue removal and potential effects on soil carbon.
Advanced biofuels and bioproducts are being made from crop residues in the US and elsewhere; however, the market value and sustainability of this emerging industry is dependent on maintaining soil health.
This three-day workshop will provide an opportunity to address critical research and policy issues associated with determining the carbon intensity of advanced biofuels from crop residues. This workshop is designed to improve our mutual understanding of soil carbon results from crop residue removal, soil carbon modeling efforts related to residue removal, and current status of life-cycle assessment modeling to determine the carbon intensity of advanced biofuels from crop residues.
Check out the robust Program & Schedule.
Join us to contribute to the development of a publication summarizing the science of these integrated fields, and to provide a stable basis for policy and biofuel industries.
To foster discussion, registration is limited to 200 attendees.
|July 20 or Before||$295|
|July 21 or After||$395|
