- The Range Fuels Fiasco, 10 February 2011 by The Wall Street Journal: "As taxpayer tragedies go, Broomfield, Colorado-based Range Fuels has all the plot elements—splashy headlines, subsidies and opportunistic venture capitalists."
- "Vinod Khosla founded Range Fuels and in March 2007 it received a $76 million grant from the Department of Energy— one of six cellulosic projects the Bush Administration selected for $385 million in grants. Range said it would build the nation's first commercial cellulosic plant, near Soperton, Georgia, using wood chips to produce 20 million gallons a year in 2008, with a goal of 100 million gallons."
- "By spring 2008, Range had also attracted $130 million of private funding, the largest venture investment in the nation in the first quarter of that year."
- "In early 2010, the EPA said Range would finally produce some fuel in 2010—but only four million gallons, not 100 million, and of methanol, not cellulosic ethanol."
- "So taxpayers have committed $162 million (along with at least that much in private financing) to produce four million gallons of a biofuel that others have been making in quantity for decades."
- Agriculture Secretary Vilsack Awards Woody Biomass Utilization Projects, 24 June 2010 by the USDA: "Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced the award of more than $4.2 million in grants to 13 small businesses and community groups developing innovative renewable energy projects and new product development using woody biomass from hazardous fuel reduction projects on National Forest land."
- "In Arizona, for example, Cooley Forest Products will purchase a mobile canter saw allowing them to process small logs at a forest landing, thereby reducing transportation costs. West Range Reclamation in Colorado can now acquire a delimber/debarker allowing them to efficiently process beetle-killed trees."
- "Earlier this week, Vilsack released a report which provided a roadmap on how America can meet the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2)."
- Rentech & ClearFuels Bio-Refinery Awarded US $23M from DOE, 26 January 2010 by Renewable Energy World: "Rentech Inc. and ClearFuels Technology Inc. on Monday announced today that their project to construct a biomass gasifier at Rentech's Energy Technology Center (RETC) in Denver, Colorado has been awarded a conditional US $22.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)."
- Colorado Center for Biorefining and Biofuels (C2B2) - "a cooperative research and educational center devoted to the conversion of biomass to fuels and other products."
- Consortium for Agricultural Soils Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases (located at Colorado State University) - "CASMGS is a consortium of nine universities and one National Laboratory assembled to investigate the potential of agricultural soils to mitigate greenhouse gases."
- Boulder Biodiesel - Boulder-based collective of individuals and businesses formed to promote the use and production of biofuels.
- Range Fuels - Colorado-based company that establishing a cellulosic ethanol plant in Soperton, Georgia.
- 16-19 April 2012, Denver, Colorado, USA: International Biomass Conference & Expo. (Themes: Biomass, biofuels, feedstocks, sustainability.)
- 12 March 2009, Golden, Colorado, USA: The Conundrum of Biofuels, Food Security, and Climate in a Globalizing Economy (PDF file) This is part of a series of 'brown bag seminars' sponsored by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) which takes place the second Thursday of every month. Seminars are held either in Washington, D.C. or in Golden, Colorado. (Themes: food, climate change)
- 15-18 June 2009, Denver: 2009 International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo (Themes: ethanol, commercialization)
- 9-12 August 2009, Boulder: North American Biochar Conference 2009 (Themes: agriculture, biochar/char, carbon, policy)
- 23-24 October 2009, Boulder, Colorado, USA: Energy Justice Conference (Themes: biomass, energy access, indoor air pollution)
- From the Conference Rationale: "This conference will focus on...the energy oppressed poor (EOP) - afflicted by energy access problems....[T]he low energy world...primarily relies on biomass-based fire to meet all of its energy needs....Black soot emitted by imperfect combustion of biomass creates indoor pollution causing the annual death of a million and half persons....In addition, black soot in the atmosphere has recently been identified as a significant source of global warming."
- 18-20 July 2008, Golden, Colorado: 3rd Annual Biodiesel Collective Conference. (Themes: biodiesel, biodiesel co-ops, small biodiesel producers)
