Timing Is Everything! Infocast's Cellulosic Biofuels Summit Coincides With the Dawn of a New Era in American Renewable Fuels

Leading Companies in the Cellulosic Biofuels Arena to Present New Proof of the Potential for Commercial Scale Production

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 23, 2009) - Infocast's Cellulosic Biofuels Summit will return to Washington, DC, November 16-19, for its 4th annual edition -- and the timing couldn't be better! An October 15th article in the New York Times confirmed that the promise of cellulosic biofuels is firing on all cylinders as a growing number of companies are making the leap from start-ups to small-scale production, with the realization of commercial-scale production increasingly within feasible reach.

"Across the country, start-up companies and major corporations are trying to produce ethanol without relying on food crops the way corn-based ethanol does. The results of all this effort are starting to show. Pilot facilities are going up, companies are testing their product lines and, increasingly, it is possible to visit real plants and see production methods that appear to be working," observes reporter, Matthew L. Wald in the New York Times.

This year's four-day Summit will take place November 16-19, 2009 at the Almas Temple including over a dozen solo presentations by leading companies in the cellulosic biofuels arena as led by Keynote Presenter, Dr. Kristina M. Johnson, the Under Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy.

This Summit's first day will be devoted to a Finance & Investment Forum on Monday, November 16. The Summit follows on November 17 & 18 and will feature 70+ speakers from players representing the entire biofuels value chain with over a dozen status reports by leading developers such as Iogen, Coskata, Inc., DuPont Danisco, Verenium, Range Fuels, BlueFire Ethanol and Mendel Biotechnology as well as special presentations from BP Biofuels and the Environmental Protection Agency. The Summit will conclude on November 19 with the Feedstock Supply Chain Forum.
