April Biorenewables Café

by Valdeir Arantes ~ April 1st, 2013. Filed under: Upcoming Café.

Dear friends of Biorenewables Cafe,

Our next Biorenewables Cafe will feature a talk by Darcy Quinn, director of Business Development, Nexterra Systems Corp. We will have the Cafe on Tuesday, April 9 at 6:30 pm at the Railway Club.

Abstract :

Technology won’t save us. The need to explore new business models in bioenergy

Conversion technology is the core to any bioenergy project. As a result there has been a global interest on developing bioenergy technologies that are slightly more efficient than their predecessors.  Despite these efforts, commercial adoption of bioenergy lags other renewable energy sources because most projects cannot meet the financial requirements of investors.  Can a new model that focuses on the whole product solution be implemented to reduce overall project costs and project risks?  This presentation will explore the challenges new technologies face and some potential solutions.
