Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s First International  

 INTERNATIONAL Biofuels development summit

Accelerating Innovation to Commercialization

Scientific Innovations in Biofuels

Accelerating the Commercialization of Biofuels

May 13-15, 2008 •   Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel • Baltimore, MD

With First Generation Biofuels beginning to make a major contribution in addressing the US and the World’s need to transition from Fossil-Based Fuels to Renewables and Second Generation Biofuels beginning to create the promise of accelerating this transition without the food supply and other social and environmental costs associated with First Generation Biofuels, Biofuels Development is poised for tremendous growth over the next decade.

This premier CHI Biofuels Development Summit creates a unique forum bringing together, in one place, both the leaders in Scientific Innovations in biofuels sourcing, development and processing and the leading Commercial Development practitioners in Biofuels: Financing, Business Development and Alliances.

Public-Private Partnerships and rapid Commercialization of the most promising technologies and Commercialization strategies. Come participate with other leading scientists and product and process development experts and leading Financing, Business Development and Alliance practitioners and thought leaders in this outstanding program. Submit your proposed presentation Today!

Submission of topics on leading-edge scientific research in the development and processing of Biofuels critical to biofuels adoption and more cost-effective fuel sources, methods to solve problems in the production of ethanol, butanol, biodiesel and other fuels, as well as presentations by Lleading Practitioners and Thought Leaders on financing, alliances and commercialization of Biofuels are encouraged, 

Topics may include, but not be limited to:
