Session 3
Advanced Biofuels, Chemicals, and Co-Products I
Monday, April 28, 2014: 1:00 PM-4:25 PM
Grand Ballroom A-C, lobby level (Hilton Clearwater Beach)
Ulrika Rova - Luleň University of Technology, Luleň, and John D. Trawick - Genomatica, Inc., San Diego, CA
Chemicals and advanced biofuels (such as biogasoline, jet fuel, higher alcohols and fatty acids, biogas, etc.) can be produced from biomass-derived sugars, biomass-derived synthesis gas, or other sustainable substrates. This session will highlight advances in biological and combined thermochemical/biological production of these substances. Production of bio-based intermediates for petroleum refinery feedstocks as well as co-products from lignin or other side streams will also be presented. There are two session covering these topics.
