Biofuels: Metrics and Challenges | AIChE

Biofuels: Metrics and Challenges

The webinar will cover leading candidates for both solid and liquid biofuels. The criteria for evaluating these fuels in a combined technical, economic, social and regulatory environment will be reviewed. Based on the fit of various choices, the challenges to be solved for the various candidates will be reviewed and the presenter’s observations about the most promising, as well as the "grand challenges" to be solved will be offered.

Attendees will learn about the critical economic, environmental and social issues that will impact a biofuels project along with the technical programs that could enhance a particular project.

Those who would benefit from this presentation include technical persons who are, or might be, working on biofuels projects and technology and research managers responsible for developing and implementing biofuels projects.
