I’m listening right now to the free webcast of the Department of Energy’s Biomass 2011: Replace the Whole Barrel, Supply the Whole Market, which is taking place in Washington, D.C.

Leaders from every part of the industry are on-hand, as are many of the people in government who influence the industry most.

It’s a two-day conference, and tomorrow morning POET Project LIBERTY Director Jim Sturdevant will take part in the Opening Plenary, “Industry Perspectives on Bioenergy.†He’ll go through what Project LIBERTY is, what has been accomplished, what remains to be done, and some of the benefits (environmental, economic, etc.). His session starts at 8:30 a.m. EST.

If you’d like to hear it live, sign up for Biomass 2011 here.
