SDForum Presents “Biofuels – Is Sugar the New Oil?” on May 17 (Discount Available)

SDForumOn May 17, SDForum will present the next program in its Clean Tech Breakfast Series entitled Biofuels – Is Sugar the New Oil?  A summary of this program is:

As global crude oil supplies become more expensive and uncertain, many countries view biofuels from conventional sugar crops as a cheaper, cleaner, more secure substitute for oil. Several questions arise: Once sugar becomes a major energy source, how will sugar prices vary with crude oil prices and with rising demand? Are biofuels truly a cleaner alternative to oil-derived fuels? Will current technologies be compatible with future sources of sugar?

This program will feature the following panelists:

  • Kef Kasdin, Proterro Inc.
  • Aaron Moser, LS9
  • Greg Young, Burrill & Company
  • Moderated by: Thomas Lord, PricewaterhouseCoopers

This program will be held from 8:00 am - 10:00 am at SAP, 3412 Hillview Avenue, Baltic/Caribbean rooms in Building 2, Palo Alto, CA.
