A NASCAR driver is in south Georgia to help spread the word about alternative energy sources.

Kenny Wallace spoke at the sixth annual Bio-Energy Conference at Tifton's UGA Campus.

Earlier this year, NASCAR announced it plans to use SUNOCO Green E-15, a 15% ethanol blend.

Georgia Agricultural Commissioner Gary Black also addressed the conference that brings energy experts together to talk about renewable energy.

"There is some new technology coming down the road that folk will hear about here, about how you can convert into green gasoline and green diesel and stuff. You know what is amazing is down the road, I do not know exactly how far, but you know some of our speakers will tell us that converting crops like this into liquid fuel,"says Craig Kvien, UGA Crop Scientist.

The conference features sessions on energy crops, converting waste to energy, and how to make "green" gasoline from wood or grass.
