Biofuels: Economic Prospects and Environmental Implications

Increased renewable energy production from bio-resources will significantly increase competition for agricultural and natural resources. It also will intensify land use issues among food, fuel, fiber, urbanization, and environmental services. These complex changes will produce global economic and environmental impacts that will not be universally beneficial.

Please join us for presentations by two of the nation’s leading experts on this issues, and discussion of how these issues affect Minnesota.
