379 Sustainable Fuel from Renewable Resources

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Union Square 13 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session will cover new research on: 1) Hydrogen from waste biomass through thermochemical routes, 2) Biodiesel, green diesel obtained from vegetable oils/waste cooking oils/FOG through thermochemical routes, 3) Fuels from biomass through liquefaction (e.g., pyrolysis), gasification and their upgrading, 4) Ethanol from biomass through thermochemical routes. In addition, researchers with new sustainable fuel production technologies are encouraged to submit abstracts in this session.
