Continental 7 (Hilton San Francisco)
#672 - Pretreatment of Lignocellulosic Biomass and Interactions with Other Processing Steps II (T4009)
Explore progress in developing and understanding technologies to prepare solid cellulosic biomass for conversion by enzymatic hydrolysis using a variety of process configurations. Included will be updates from investigators in the Biomass Refining Consortium for Applied Fundamentals and Innovation (CAFI).
