#412 - Sustainable Nonfuel Products/Production Systems from Biomass Resources (TE017)
This session will explore advances in sustainable non-fuel products/production systems from biomass. Papers that demonstrate the application of sound scientific, and core chemical engineering principles will be favored. The topics to be covered include but not limited to conversion/production technology development and implementation, status of biomass utilization and commercialization in US and other countries.
