Science Under the Stars: Grassoline: Fueling the Biofuels Debate

Thursday, March 20 at 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Brackenridge Field Lab 2907 Lake Austin Blvd., Austin TX 78703

Biofuels research is pitched as a promising renewable resource for powering our homes and cars. But what is the current state of the knowledge and science? What are the pros and cons of cellulosic ethanol production in America? Graduate student and switch grass researcher Elizabeth Milano walks us through the weeds to help us understand the potential of biofuels to serve us as a renewable resource. 

Science Under the Stars is a free, monthly public outreach lecture series founded and organized by graduate students in the Section of Integrative Biology at University of Texas at Austin. Our goals are to host fun, informal science outreach events for Austin citizens of all ages, and give scientists a venue to share their work with the general public. In case of inclement weather, lectures are held indoors. Arrive early for refreshments and fun activities for kids of all ages.
