Join Northwest SEED and the Northwest Environmental Business Council in welcoming special guest, the NW Energy Coalition, to this month's Energy After Hours. Enjoy a drink with the people making a difference in the clean energy sector. And remember to always drink efficiently!
Ever wonder what cars can run biodiesel? Will the 2011 cars work with biodiesel? Do you need to make modifications? Can you get a diesel smart car? A small truck? Do you need to do anything special to your car in the winter? Can you buy an old Mercedes diesel and run biodiesel in it?
The NW Biodiesel Network is hosting its first Biodiesel Car Show and Education Forum focused on mechanical issues on Saturday, August 20, from 12-3 pm. We will have cars there for you to view and experts there to answer your questions.
Celebrate the sun at the July Energy After Hours! Northwest SEED and the Northwest Environmental Business Council welcome special guest Solar Washington to this month's event. Come down and share a drink with the folks making a difference in the clean energy sector.

Feedstock and Agricultural Issues
What role do feedstocks and agricultural issues play in the food and fuel debate? How do they affect sustainable biofuels production, and agriculture and farm policy? Are they part of a sound environmental policy? An energy policy? Can we grow sufficient feedstocks to displace petroleum?
Biofuels have been blamed for high commodity prices, food shortages, rain forest destruction, bad agricultural policies worldwide, and environmental disaster. Understanding the issues surrounding biofuels is critical to making rational decisions about our future energy policy and determining if they are truly a valid fossil fuels alternative.
