#537 - Forest Biorefinery Processes: Wood Extraction & Processing for Biofuels and Biobased Products (17001)
Forest Bio-refineries process forest resources such as wood and other lignocellulosic biomass into a spectrum of energy products and materials. Among the energy products are liquid transportation fuels such as ethanol and butanol whereas materials include biopolymers such as polyhydroxyalkanoates. Contributions are being sought that address new developments concerning the processing and engineering of such forest biorefinery processes.
