495 Reaction Engineering for Biomass Conversion I

Wednesday, November 11, 2015: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
355C (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Crop residues, forest residues, woody biomass, and plant-based industrial processing woody biomass wastes provide a broad renewable feedstock base for developing energy efficient and environmentally sustainable processes for producing a wide range of chemicals, fuels, and bio-based materials. This session provides a forum for the application of Reaction Engineering in the biomass conversion area. Attempt will be made to publish a special issue on a journal for selected papers presented in this session along with other related sessions.
