Continental 3 (Hilton San Francisco)
#644 - Reactor Engineering for Biomass Feedstocks (T4004)
Emphasis on fundamental reactor engineering for the conversion of biomass to combustible gases, "biocrude" and "biodiesel" oils, bioethanol, and biocarbons. Favor papers demonstrating the sound application of core scientific and engineering principles.
