Posen Awarded Best Paper and Best Poster
CEE/EPP PhD student Daniel Posen was recently awarded Best Paper for his presentation at the 2014 Technology Management and Policy Graduate consortium in Lisbon last month. His paper, entitled "Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Benefits of Expanding U.S. Biofuel Incentives to Promote Biomass use in Chemical Feedstocks,” proposes that credits for the U.S. renewable fuel standard could be applied to bio-ethanol used for bio-ethylene production (in addition to the credits already applied to bio-ethanol for fuel) without compromising on greenhouse gas reduction targets.
Daniel’s research was also awarded a prize in the poster competition at the ACS Annual Green Chemistry and Engineering conference in Washington, DC.
