667 Advances In Biofuels: DOE Bioenergy Research Centers II

Thursday, November 1, 2012: 12:30 PM
335 (Convention Center )
Description:
This session will report on resent progress made at the three DOE Bioenergy Research Centers. These three centers were established in 2007 by the DOE to accelerate the development of renewable fuels. Topics covered will include plant production, cell wall engineering, advanced pretreatment processes, and enzyme and microbial biocatalyst development. Papers will be limited to researchers associated with one of the three centers.
