Alternative Feedstocks for Energy and Chemicals

The desire to produce chemicals and fuels starting with different feedstocks from what is currently used comes from the need for economical and ecological stability and security. This session encourages papers that describe the development of such processes. There are many such examples, such as the substitution of natural gas for liquid hydrocarbon feedstocks, production of ethanol and biodiesel for transportation fuels, biomass utilization, chemical synthesis using alternative building blocks, etc. The emphasis being on overall process development, scale-up, process design, and using technology with appropriate management to advance from an idea to industrial practice.



Paper abstracts are public but to access Extended Abstracts, you must first purchase the conference proceedings.
