Description:
Lignocellulosic biomass is the earth’s most abundant and infinite renewable organic material. Bioprocessing of biomass has the potential to become a leading manufacturing technology for sustainable production of renewable energy, biochemicals and biomaterials - a national priority with significant economic, environmental and social benefits. The focus of this session is on technological advances achieved through thermochemical and biochemical conversion of biomass to biofuels and value-added bioproducts as the ultimate alternative to the petroleum-derived products and fuels of environmental concern. Examples include development of novel, cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly technologies for biomass-based production of bioethanol, biohydrogen, green and algal fuels, organic acids, biopolymers, etc.
