The Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is hosting the Process Integration and Carbon Efficiency Workshop on June 11–12, 2014, in Lakewood, Colorado. This workshop will explore advances in biological and chemical conversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks to biofuels and bioproducts. BETO is seeking to collect information from key industry, university, and national laboratory stakeholders, regarding the critical research and development needs for various processes. This includes the breakdown of biomass to usable intermediates, upgrading of intermediates to fuels and chemicals, separations technologies, and process integration.
The proposed topics to be covered in the breakout sessions include the following:
- Biological methods for conversion of biomass to fuels and products
- Chemical and catalytic methods for conversion of biomass to fuels and products
- Separations and integration of unit operations
- Technological challenges not covered by the above sessions and their relationships to the conversion pathways diagram.
View the Workshop Agenda for more details about the breakout sessions.
Information gathered from the workshop on the challenges and barriers related to the efficient production of biofuels and bio-based chemicals is available to the public in the following summary report: Process Integration and Carbon Efficiency Workshop Summary Report
