Free Webinar on Solid Biofuels Standards
September 4, 2009

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, along with the U.S. Department of Commerce, will host a webinar on solid biofuels and related standards. The event will take place September 11th, 2009, 11:00 a.m. (EST), and is free of charge.

Presenters for the event include Scott Cedarquist, ASABE Director of Standards; Richard Straub, University of Wisconsin; Lars Sjöberg, International Secretariat, ISO TC 238; Jason Knopes, Program Manager, American National Standards Institute. The Pellet Fuel Institute, the Biomass Thermal Energy Council, and ASTM International will also provide presentations.

The 90-minute webinar will address fundamental questions about standards for solid biofuels: Why does the industry need standards? What is the status of work being done within ISO and elsewhere? How does one get involved in standards development?
