It's unfortunate that the 2006 Southeastern Biodiesel Conference is starting today at the University of Georgia in Athens, since I'm currently up in Michigan and cannot report on the event directly. I'll keep looking online for news, and perhaps I'll be able to speak to some of the participants later in the week. For now, I just wanted to mention that the conference is geared towards folks who want to brew biodiesel in the backyard as well as mega-producers. Speakers will present sessions on the chemistry of biodiesel, biodiesel quality control and conference participants will tour the UGA biorefinery.

In slightly related news, the university is planning to run its campus bus system on B20, but hasn't made the switch yet. Also, I wrote an article about the biofuel movement in Athens last fall for the local altweekly, which you can read here.
