Papers should focus on integrating multiple unit operations for bio-refining and conversion of renewable feedstocks to fuels and chemicals, especially in regards to opportunities for enhancing process efficiencies. Emphasis will be given to papers relying on experimental data applied in combination with fundamental engineering principals. Examples could include: combining pretreatment and hydrolysis, heat recycle between pretreatment and distillation processes, developing water recycle schemes, and integrated co-fermentation and product recovery.
