Description:
Papers are sought that address research and development toward the sustainable use of bio-based alternative fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel. Topics covered may include, but are not limited to: (1) R&D devoted to the development of innovative processes for the production of ethanol or biodiesel; (2) The application of core chemical engineering principles to pilot- or larger-scale ethanol or biodiesel production; and (3) Production of other bio-based alternative fuels such as microbial hydrogen production, etc.
