||2008, Vol.13, No.4, p.219-224. Illus. 15 ref.
||This article reviews the papers presented at a conference on safety and health related to the production of biofuels, held in Omaha, United States, 14-17 November 2007. The exposures experienced by workers included distiller's grains and bio-processing byproducts, spent catalyst, solvents, brine, microbial agents, genetically modified organisms and effluents. Other issues discussed included change in cropping patterns and resultant use of different seeding and harvesting technologies, pests and the intensive rural traffic resulting from the transport of large quantities of biomass and grain.
