September 27, 2010 – The
Energy Center of Wisconsin will deliver a free webinar – Rethinking Biogas: An
Emerging Energy Source in the Midwest
– on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 from 1
to 2 p.m. (CDT).

The webinar will be
presented by Peter Taglia, a staff scientist of Clean Wisconsin.

The Midwest contains the
world’s largest concentration of productive agriculture and food processing,
and produces enormous amounts of animal and food waste. However, only a tiny
portion of these wastes is converted to biogas, a renewable substitute for
natural gas that reduces fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas pollution. Taglia
will discuss the potential for this renewable energy resource to grow by
examining biogas sources, conversion technologies, and outputs together with
energy policies needed to support them.

This webinar kicks off a
complimentary three-part Bioenergy Webinar Series that will explore the vast
opportunities to convert waste streams from agriculture, food processing and
forestry to biogas. Presentations will also examine the deployment of waste
digesters in the U.S. and abroad and will look at case studies from the food
processing industry. Additional topics include Biogas: Developing a Statewide
Plan for Wisconsin’s Opportunity Fuel
on October 20, 2010 and Midwest Food
Processors Anaerobic Digester Casebook
on November 23, 2010.
