Thank-you to everyone who attended and participated to help make Biomass 2011 a remarkable success.

More than 600 speakers, moderators, sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees were able to listen to discussions about the ongoing challenges and achievements in the bioenergy industry. Biomass 2011 addressed key issues in important areas, such as feedstock supply, conversion pathways, algal biofuels, investment risk and innovation, regulation and policy, and the international perspective.

This year's conference was centered around the theme of replacing the whole barrel of petroleum and featured a three-part debate on the "best use of biomass." Biomass 2011 also featured a series of interactive exhibits, which highlighted the contributions of our national laboratories along the entire bioenergy supply chain.

Several distinguished keynote speakers participated at the event, including Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, Assistant Secretary of the Navy Jackalyne Pfannenstiel, and U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar.
