This Friday, December 16, Valerie Reed, Acting Program Manager for the Department of Energy’s Biomass Program, will be hosting a live Twitter chat! Dr. Reed will be taking questions and discussing the importance of advancing the domestic biofuels industry to reduce the nation’s dependence on foreign oil and ensure a secure energy future. Log in at 1:00 PM EST to join the conversation and participate in the Department’s December focus on biofuels.
