780 Demonstration Scale Biorefining-Scale up Challenges

Friday, November 2, 2012: 8:30 AM
334 (Convention Center )
This session will outline commercial, governmental, or academic efforts to advance multi-product biorefineries. Topics likely to be addressed include: development or improvement -- including conceptual analysis and life cycle assessments -- of renewable feedstocks-based multiproduct biorefineries, i.e., based on starch or oil crops and/or lignocellulosic biomass; development of enabling catalytic and/or separative processes; discovery or development of enabling enzyme or fermentative/microbial technologies or bio-based materials.
