The Feedstock-Conversion Interface Consortium (FCIC) is an integrated and collaborative network of nine U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories dedicated to addressing the technical risks that integrated pioneer biorefineries face. The goal of the FCIC is to develop science-based knowledge and tools to understand biomass feedstock and process variability, improving overall operational reliability, conversion performance, and product quality across the biomass value chain.
Learn more about the FCIC's new open-source tools to predict biomass flow behavior and to predict blade wear. You can also download the FCIC’s Annual Review of Research FY2021 report for an overview of the accomplishments of FCIC researchers in fiscal year 2021.
