Location: Cork, Ireland
University College Cork, Cork, Ireland – September 16 2008
On September 16th, 2008, IEA Bioenergy Task 39 worked with Jerry Murphy and his colleagues at University College Cork to provide a one day Biofuels Symposium to an audience of academic, industry, and government representatives from across Ireland.  The meeting covered a wide range of technology, policy, and implementation questions, with presentations from IEA Task members as well as invited speakers from a range of Irish institutions and companies.  About 100 attendees from across Ireland, as well as 12 of the other member nations of Task 39, were engaged in a stimulating series of sessions which culminated with a ‘Biofuel Debate’, considering some of the key questions that decision-makers have about liquid biofuels.  The symposium was sponsored by Sustainable Energy Ireland and the Environmental Protection Agency as well as IEA Bioenergy Task 39.  All presentations may be downloaded below.
