The workshop will bring experts from various sectors such as industry, academia and national laboratories, and identify opportunities and barriers related to biomass gasification and pyrolysis to produce “fungible, drop-in” transportation fuels. Experts in biomass gasification, pyrolysis, and logistics have been invited to discuss recent advancements in science and technologies pertaining to biofuels and barriers in making the lignocellulosic biofuels dream come true.
The keynote speaker of this workshop is Dr. Thomas D. Foust, Director of National Advanced Biofuels Consortium, funded by the Department of Energy, at National Renewable Energy laboratory.
Speakers will present their research on gasification, pyrolysis, biomass logistics including challenges and potential solutions and will include representatives from several universities, federal agencies and companies including Rectech.
The workshop will have graduate student poster competition with cash prize and will provide networking opportunities for those who are venturing into biofuels area.
Tours of the Center for Bioenergy and Bioproducts Laboratory’s Gasification and Fractionation facility will be available. The state-of-the-art facility housed bubbling-fluidized bed gasifier, F-T reactors, biomass fractionation unit and analytical laboratories to support ongoing research activities on biomass thermochemical and biochemical platforms.
