Biofuels Center president to address international green energy conference in Greensboro

Biofuels Center president and CEO W. Steven Burke will present on opening day of North Carolina A&T State University's "Third Annual Conference on Green and Sustainable Technology," an international event on 15-16 November 2012 in Greensboro. The event is expected to gather more than 200 energy professionals to discuss green energy, green construction, and green technology. The conference is organized by the Center for Energy Research and Technology at N.C. A&T.

Mr. Burke will address the first session on net-zero energy and will later serve on the energy discussion panel. Sessions scheduled later in the day include net-zero water and net-zero waste.

Fitting the spirit of the two-day event, the conference will be held at the Proximity Hotel in Greensboro, the first LEED-certified platinum hotel in the country, which uses 39-percent less energy and 33-percent less water compared to conventional hotels.
