Papers are sought describing recent developments in the area of biobased alternative fuels. Topics may include but are not necessarily limited to the production of biofuels from lignocellulosic biomass, algae and other renewable, biobased feedstocks, and include both biochemical and thermochemical conversion pathways. Significant interest is focused on renewable hydrocarbon fuels as well as cellulosic ethanol, bio-derived methane, and other renewable fuels and blendstocks. Advances pertaining to feedstock fractionation, catalytic processes, and product purification technologies including efficiency of unit operations and cost reduction for “balance of plant” operations are also of interest as they relate to performance of integrated biorefineries.
