403 Distributed Bioprocessing for Integrated Biorefineries

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
Union Square 19 & 20 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Lignocellulosic biomass has lower bulk density and wider geographical production distribution than fossil fuels, as well as considerable variability even within the same harvest year. Distributed processes that mitigate biomass variability, densify it for transport, alter its processing characteristics and/or produce co-products can improve the overall economics of integrated biorefineries for converting renewable plant biomass. This session focuses on presentations that discuss new technologies, process economics, and/or integrated processing approaches that combine distributed processing with conversion of renewable materials into fuels and value-added products.
