Hybrid Processing for Biorenewable Fuels & Chemicals Production Symposium
|Date/Time:||Wednesday, 15 May 2013 from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm|
|Cost:||Free for ISU faculty, staff, students. $80 for non-students; $40 for non-ISU students.|
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.
