Commencement Challenge

  • Patrick Takahashi


It is a curious thing that in the United States, at the completion of an educational career, the graduation ceremonies are referred to as a “commencement.” It is, thus, entirely appropriate that as the final speaker after four days of intense information exchange, I provide a commencement challenge, for what we have accomplished during the past week is to establish the foundation for the future. We are not at an end, but in the process of taking the next step—we are continuing what will be a long journey that will hopefully lead to cost-competitive biohydrogen in harmony with the environment.
