Union Square 17 (Hilton)
Developing fuels from renewable resources like biomass that mimic today’s oil derived fuels could revolutionalize the transportation sector. This session will explore the current state of technology development for advanced biofuels other than ethanol, possible avenues for integration into current oil refining infrastructure, and the challenges that must be addressed to bring these types of fuels to market.
