Sustainability of Biofuels Revolution Subject of Dec. 7 Presentation

During his State of the Union address, President George Bush stated that his goal was for the United States to replace 35 billion gallons of gasoline with renewable and alternative fuels by 2017.

The Clarkson University Honors Program sophomore problem-solving course focused on that statement this semester, and through research and debate analyzed its feasibility and whether or not the implementation of biofuels into society should be supported.

On Friday, December 7, the class will present the final product their work at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Clarkson's Downtown Snell Hall, across the street from the public library and village offices. This presentation will be preceded at 6:30 p.m. by a display of the students' research posters, a display of a butanol-run car and refreshments. The public is invited to attend.

The Clarkson University Honors Program offers academic experiences and opportunities to students who want to be challenged intellectually throughout their college experience. Limited to 30-40 students per class year, the program focuses on current, real-world problems in science, technology, and society.
