The Appropriate-scale Alcohol Fuel Production Seminar:

Global Solutions for Cooking, Refrigeration, Electricity and Transport

(see pdf for detail).

Monday, November 29 - Thursday, December 2, 2010

Embassy Suites, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

The International Institute for Ecological Agriculture (IIEA) and Project Gaia cordially invite you to attend a seminar focused on the global production and use of appropriate-scale alcohol fuel. Alcohol fuels offer an abundant supply of energy for cooking, heating, refrigeration, electricity and transportation needs.

Worldwide, over three billion people lack access to modern forms of energy and cook with traditional stoves that burn polluting fuels. Illnesses resulting from indoor air pollution claim almost 2 million lives worldwide each year. In many parts of the world pneumonia in infants and small children is the primary cause of death, and evidence links kitchen smoke to chronic bronchitis in women, low birth-weight in children, active TB, and many other ailments. Clean-burning stoves and alcohol fuels can dramatically change these statistics.

During the 3½ day educational seminar, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of ways to:

  • Provide pollution-free energy for safe indoor cooking and other uses
  • Stabilize domestic fuel production costs to less than 30 cents/liter (USD)
  • Curb deforestation, black carbon emissions and global warming—while earning carbon credits
  • Integrate domestic food and energy production
  • Identify high-value, high-yield crops for all climates to produce sustainable energy and increase soil fertility
  • Create and encourage permanent local jobs
  • Learn about micro distillery manufacturing investment and distribution opportunities and how to couple stoves with distilleries

Registration for this unique program is limited and “invitation only”. The seminar is ideally suited to the information needs of government and NGO officials, energy, agriculture, public health, economic and environmental policy makers, secondary and university educators, labor leaders, motor fleet and facility supervisors, climate policy experts, infrastructure investment bankers, waste water treatment managers and domestic food production professionals.
