NSF IGERT students participate in conference in Brazil.

K-State NSF Integrative Graduate Educational Research Traineeship (IGERT) students attended the RCN Conference on Pan American Biofuels & Bioenergy Sustainability at the Golden Tulip Recife Palace, Recife, Brazil July 22-25, 2014. The contingent was led by Dr. Jason Bergtold agricultural economics, students included; Nana Baah Appiah Nkansah biological and agricultural engineering, Krishna Pokharel agricultural engineering, Kaelin Saul biological and agricultural engineering, and Jared Carson chemical engineering.

Purpose of the Conference

The implications of large-scale biofuels and bioenergy production on environmental systems and social conditions are largely unknown. Yet despite this lack of fundamental sustainability knowledge, there currently is a rapid movement toward the development of biofuels and bioenergy production systems in the Pan American region, which will likely lead to dramatic changes in existing human and natural systems.

The purpose of this conference is to gather a network of biofuel sustainability researchers from a wide range of disciplines along with industry leaders, government officials, leaders of non-governmental organizations, foundations, and other professionals to focus on a range of issues, including community impacts, the water-energy nexus, biodiversity, soil biogeochemical cycles, energy policy, environmental life cycle assessment, food security, and biomass supply transportation logistics.
