October 14-16: 2nd Annual Energy from Biomass and Waste Conference & Expo, a showcase and educational forum. As issues of energy security and environmental protection begin to dominate policy and the news, domestically produced energy from biomass and waste can provide an economically viable alternative to traditional energy sources. Now is the time for bio-energy in Pittsburgh as Pennsylvania's natural resources and recent legislation put the state in prime position to be a national and international leader. The event will feature a technology exhibition with delegates from around the world and two days of conference tracks on targeted market, technology, finance & investment, project development, and workforce development. Sponsored by Pittsburgh's own Steel City Biofuels and Freesen & Partner GmbH.
