The goal of this 1.5-day workshop is to discuss the technological challenges of hybrid processing and identify collaboration opportunities. Both academic and industrial participants are strongly encouraged to attend.

Hybrid processing is the biological utilization of thermochemically-depolymerized biomass. This thermochemical treatment of biomass yields either sugar- and organic-acid-rich bio-oil (i.e. "pyrolytic sugars") or CO- and H2-rich syngas. This thermochemical treatment is a distinct alternative to enzymatic breakdown or hydrolysis of biomass. These sugars, organic acids and syngas are attractive substrates for the fermentative production of biorenewable fuels and chemicals.
