Webcast on 10/24: Biofuels Research 10/11/2009

What: Live Webcast of CRES Monthly Meeting:  

Biofuels Research by Mark R. Nimlos  

When: Thursday, Oct 24, 7:00 pm  – 9:00 pm

 Where:

Colorado Springs location: Gill Foundation, Training Room, 315 E. Costilla St.

Pueblo location:  CSU-Pueblo, Technology Bldg., Rm. 110

 

Why: Driven by the desire to limit imported oil and legislative mandates, research is being conducted to investigate the use of biomass to produce liquid transportation fuels. This research involves studies of plant science, chemistry, physics and engineering, and to be effective, technoeconomic analysis must be conducted to address important cost drivers. This presentation will discuss some of the important research efforts in biofuels production and how they are tied to technical targets to improve the economic viability of biofuels.

Mark R. Nimlos is a Principal Scientist at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the National Bioenergy Center. He is the leader of the Gasification Modeling and Optimization Task for the Biomass Program at NREL. He is also leader of the Biomass Molecular Sciences Section in the National Bioenergy Center. He has worked NREL for 20 years and is currently active thermochemical and biochemical conversion technologies for biofuels. He received his Ph. D. in Chemical Physics from the University of Colorado and has over 70 publications in peer-reviewed scientific publications.

Topic: Lee White,  “Financing Renewable Energy  in Today’s Capital Markets”

When: Thursday, June 25, 7:00 pm  – 9:00 pm

 Why: Finding the right financing for renewable energy projects has always been a challenge. Today’s combination of tight financial markets and the need for more utility-scale RE projects, however, makes this challenge even more significant. Join us for a discussion by one of the leading experts in this field to see how projects like these get financed.

 Lee White is an Executive Vice President and Manager for George K. Baum & Company at its Denver Public Finance Headquarters. He has been in investment banking for over 20 years and is responsible for underwriting over $6 billion of municipal bonds. Mr. White has assisted numerous state & local governments and private corporations finance their infrastructure needs. The complete list of Mr. White’s experience, accomplishments, and credentials is far too long for one paragraph; but highlights include serving as lead banker for several hundred million dollars’ worth of renewable energy and other utility projects, Co-Chairman of the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee’s Study on Infrastructure in the United States, member of the Colorado Clean Energy Development Authority, and participation in numerous airport, stadium, higher education, and non-profit projects. Mr. White has earned a Masters of Business Administration from Harvard Business School, a Masters of City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
