534 Integrated Thermochemical and Biochemical Processing for Renewable Fuels and Chemicals

Wednesday, November 16, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Union Square 19 & 20 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
This session will explore the integration of thermo-chemical and biochemical processes for the conversion of renewable feedstocks into biofuels and/or bulk chemicals. The process integration aims to improve the sustainability of biorefineries by maximizing the utilization of feedstocks to produce final products, minimizing the production of wastes, and/or minimizing the usage of process energy from non-renewable sources. Papers will be favored that emphasize fundamental principles of engineering.

Sustainable Biorefineries
Biorefinery Technologies for Forest Based Lignocellulosic Biomass (T4A), Alternative Energy & Enabling Technologies (T4E), BioFuels (T4F)
