|Cocktail Reception with Special Presentation
(Faculty of Agr&Env -- General)
|Description:||Please join us for a cocktail reception with a special presentation on "Sustainable Energy for the Future".
Fossil fuels are a non-renewable resource that seems likely to become limiting to human activities sometime during the first half of this century. At the same time, the combustion of fossil fuels is causing a steady increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, contributing to changes in global climate and related phenomena, such as sea level rise.
There is a compelling need to find alternative energy sources that are both renewable and sustainable. Properly done advanced biofuels is a possible contributor to the long-term energy solution and Canada has considerable per capita biomass resources to facilitate this.
