This session will present information about fuel sources from biomass and solar radiation, including technical and commercial developments. Products that are bio-based and environmentally friendly for agriculture and pharmaceuticals are of particular interest. Chemical processes are described that allow profitable manufacture of renewable materials consistent with green engineering practice. Also covered will be opportunities for nations that have unique sources of fossil energy that can be converted to a more useful form; for example, natural gas to diesel and shale and tar sands mining and processing. These technologies are important for a significant region of the world that is in the transition stage to accelerated industrialization.
