Report: Next generation biofuels and advanced engines for tomorrow's transportation needs

Report on the Next Generation Biofuels and Advanced Engines for Tomorrow’s Transportation Needs workshop held 17 and 18 November 2009

In November 2009, Sandia National Laboratories hosted the Next Generation Biofuels and Advanced Engines for Tomorrow’s Transportation Needs Workshop. The event focused on the combined opportunities in biofuels and engines in the transportation sector. The workshop brought together the DOE Combustion Research Facility and the DOE Joint BioEnergy Institute along with oil companies, biofuel developers, engine manufacturers, suppliers, and experts from the university, regulatory, finance, and national laboratory communities. The intersection of biofuels and engines, if properly scaled, can meet a triad of national goals:

  • Reduced climate impact
  • Economic development
  • Energy security through energy diversity
