Advances in Algal Biorefineries II

Friday, November 12, 2010: 8:30 AM
250 E Room (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Description:
Algal biorefineries offer significant potential for future supply of oils, protein, and carbohydrates for fuels and chemicals without impacting food supplies. This session will explore advances in products and processes based on microalgal cultivation. Papers demonstrating the sound application of core scientific and engineering principles will be favored.
