March 7, 2018 10:00AM to 10:45AM MST

Join the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) on March 7, 2018, for the second webinar in the Chemical Catalysis for Bioenergy Consortium’s (ChemCatBio’s) webinar series: “Linking Catalyst and Process Development with Techno-Economic Analysis in the Conversion of Biomass to High-Octane Gasoline.” Recent ChemCatBio research has focused on catalyst and process development to produce C4–C7 hydrocarbons from dimethyl ether over a copper-modified beta zeolite (Cu/BEA) catalyst. In this webinar, Dr. Dan Ruddy will demonstrate how techno-economic analysis of the process can be used to direct catalyst development research to target specific performance advancements, and similarly, how performance improvements exhibited by the Cu/BEA catalyst affect the resulting economic viability of the process. 

ChemCatBio is a national laboratory–led research and development consortium, funded by BETO, which is dedicated to identifying and overcoming catalysis challenges for biomass conversion processes.
