Symposium to be held at Marriott on Oct. 26

On Oct. 26, former Gov. Bill Ritter, who now directs CSU’s Center for the New Energy Economy; Bryan Willson, director of CSU’s Clean Energy Supercluster; and Diana Wall, director of the School of Global Environmental Sustainability, will host the conference, which runs 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at the Marriott in Fort Collins, 350 E. Horsetooth Road.

The conference is free and open to the public, but due to limited space, registration is required.

“Colorado State offers a comprehensive list of experts on every aspect of the natural gas economy – from training the next generation of geologists to reducing emissions at the wellhead and land reclamation,” said Willson, whose laboratory has worked with industry officials for more than 20 years to reduce the environmental impacts of natural gas drilling.

“This conference is meant to educate the public about the technology of natural gas production, and explore the environmental concerns and the complexities facing the industry,” he said.
