The bioenergy supply chain - the system needed to move feedstock from the grower to the user - has the potential to be absolutely massive - accounting for as much as 1.3 billion tons of product per year. How will such a volume of material be moved to market? What knowledge and contacts do you need to take advantage of this transport and logistics business opportunity? Bioenergy supply chains promise to be different - while we can learn from how product is moved in related industries, truly successful supply chain businesses need to understand the unique aspects of bioenergy so that they can take advantage of the right approaches to make the system work well. Join us for this outstanding short course which will include a full day of presentations and discussions from both researchers and industry experts who are working to make the emerging bioenergy supply chain a reality. Who Should Attend? Haulers, contract harvesters, logistics consultants, project developers, entrepeneurs and farmers interested in getting involved in the bioenergy industry are especially encouraged to register, as this event will provide you with contacts and knowledge that you need to be successful in this sector. Similarly, policy specialists, researchers, engineers, and agricultural specialists will also benefit greatly from the experience, presentations, and networking to be gained at this event. Web streaming of the short course is available for those who cannot attend in person. All are welcome.
