Reaction Kinetics and Transport Fundamentals for Biomass Conversion II

Thursday, November 11, 2010: 12:30 PM
251 B Room (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Description:
This session will emphasize understanding reaction kinetics and transport processes and their effects on the performance of biomass conversion processes. Both modeling and experimental studies are sought, with preference for contributions that develop new fundamental insights.
