Mar. 23, 2012 – With two months left to go until World Bioenergy 2012,
information regarding the tours, the conference programs and speakers
from all over the world are reaching an all-time high.

It is truly a global event. There are
confirmed speakers from 32 countries from all continents, and a couple
more may be added in the coming days. An example of the many speakers
from outside Europe is Abbas Almodares from University of Isfahan in
Iran. He will speak about bioethanol production from dried sweet sorghum
stalks.

Professor
Almodares is an expert on sorghum, a plant that is more tolerant to
high temperatures and dry conditions than corn and sugar cane, and
therefore can be an alternative feedstock for ethanol production in many
areas of the world. By drying the chopped sorghum stalk the feedstock
can be stored in open air for a whole year without contamination or
sugar reduction. Professor Almodares speaks at the Transport – Fuel Development session on 30 May. At the same session there are also speakers from China, Australia and Colombia.

For more information about the different speakers, the full conference program and to register for the conference, visit WorldBioenergy.com.
