Session 4
Bioprocessing, Reactor Design, and Separations Technology I
Tuesday, April 29, 2014: 8:00 AM-11:25 AM
Grand Ballroom F-G, lobby level (Hilton Clearwater Beach)
Patricia Relue - The University of Toledo, Toledo, OH and Bruce Dien - National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research, USDA-ARS, Peoria, IL
An economically viable bioprocess requires definitive biomass characterization, effective material handling and bioconversion technologies in combination with efficient downstream or in situ product separation and recovery. Papers in this session will describe advances in the development, testing and demonstration of bioconversion processes at various stages of process integration, including biocatalyst recycle, integrated thermochemical/biological conversion, and materials handling. There are two session covering these topics.
