The global demand for energy continues to soar and the interface of biology-chemistry to fossil fuel replacement may be the next breakthrough.  How is chemistry preparing for this challenge? What technologies are holding promises? Will biofuels be the solution or create other problems? Join us as our speaker, Dr. Bruce Dale from the Office of Biobased Technologies at Michigan State University, discusses the challenges, innovations, and questions chemists should ask to make an informed decision on biofuels.

ACS Webinars™ is a free, weekly online event serving to connect ACS members and scientific professionals with subject matter experts and global thought leaders in chemical sciences, management, and business. The ACS Webinars are divided into several series that address topics of interest to the chemical and scientific community; these series include career development, professional growth, small & medium business, green chemistry, and executive view. Each webinar is 60 minutes in length, comprising a short presentation followed by Q&A with the speaker. The live webinars are held on Thursdays (and many Tuesdays on career topics) from 2-3pm ET.  Recordings of the webinars are available online and upcoming events are posted at http://acswebinars.org/events.
