27 Developments in Bio-Petrochemicals I

Monday, April 27, 2015: 1:30 PM
13A (Austin Convention Center)
The session on: Developments in Bio-Petrochemicals will focus on project and technical developments mainly in the bio-processing of petrochemicals and associated derivative bio-chemicals. These include units with bio-based processes and/or traditional processes, but using bio-based feedstocks, including updates in catalysis, thermodynamic characterization, modeling, economics, and other process innovations. Topic areas can include: bio-PX, bio-PET, bio-BDO, bio-butadiene, ethanol, biobutanol and other bio-based oxy alcohols and derivatives. Topics can also include developments in bio-plastics and bio-materials Discussion can also include the integration and coordination of bio-based processing and traditional processing.
