March 17, 2014

The Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) Director Jonathan Male joined the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Mike Carr to represent the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) at the 12 Hours of Sebring racing event in Florida. Held March 12–15, the race was part of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship series.

At the event, NASCAR’s International Motor Sports Association, a partner of the Green Racing initiative, announced INEOS Bio—partially funded by BETO—as the supplier of cellulosic ethanol to racecars participating in the TUDOR Championship. Dr. Male and Mr. Carr met with stakeholders and attendees  to show DOE’s support for the Green Racing initiative.
