Building a Strategy for Developing Bioenergy Ventures in the North Country
Facilitated breakout sessions bringing stakeholders, with various perspectives, to the table to define needs and implementation plans for bioenergy projects in the North Country (i.e., biodiesel, wood gasification).

Break-out sessions are expected in the following process/production areas:
-- Biodiesel
-- CHP-biogas from gasification
-- CHP biogas wood gasification
-- Dimethyl ether from wood gasification as an LPG substitute in rural areas
-- CHP-direct combustion
-- Pyrolysis-wood to heating oil
-- Anaerobic digestion of agricultural and food wastes (biogas)
-- Wood and grass pellet combustion
-- Ethanol fuel from corn, willow, and agricultural wastes

The sessions are expected to attract feedstock producers and transporters; equipment manufacturers and developers; fuel distributors and marketers; finance specialists including venture capital, bankers, loan agencies, community and economic developers; regulators from state, local, and federal agencies; and end-users/customers.
