This symposium is free and open to the public.

"Corporate Sustainable Energy - pros and cons, analysis and evaluation"

Registration is now closed.

Please mark your calendar for May 1-2, 2012 for our Corporate  Sustainabilty Symposium here at K-State. The symposium will start at 8:00am on May 1, 2012 in the Fielder Auditorium, Fiedler Hall, Manhattan, Kansas.

The focus of this symposium is to hear and learn from private industry, public agencies, and others actively involved in food and/or bioenergy production how they approach sustainability.   The symposium will examine practices employed and applied by these entities from “field-to-final product” to insure efficient energy, environmental, economic, and societal outcomes.   Perspectives related to energy use, soil and water conservation, air emissions, economics, and societal acceptance, as well as risks and opportunities related to achieving ‘sustainability’ within the agriculturally-based production supply chain will be examined.
 
There will be presentations from national experts and opportunities for networking and research discussions.   Poster presentations will be open to graduate students, with prizes awarded for the top posters ($1000.00) made possible by ConocoPhillips.  A special sub-set of the poster session will highlight the work of K-State NSF IGERT trainees.
