From 2008 to 2018, biofuel revenue is predicted to leap from $34.8 billion to $105.4 billion annually. Major market players have begun to invest significant capital in the sector. Exxon, for example, is investing $600 million in Craig Venter's Synthetic Genomics, a company focused on developing biofuel from algae. Additionally, Boeing successfully tested several bio-jet-fuel blends in late 2008 and early 2009.If you don't happen to be in Santa Monica there will be a webcast and the event will be online afterwards, in case you miss it.
This Forum brings together a panel of biofuel experts to talk about the growth of this sector and its potential for creating a greener economy. They will discuss current energy trends, scientific advances, environmental impacts, regulatory constraints and the challenges and opportunities for investors and businesses.
