The 2nd International Conference ‘Frontiers in Biorefining‘ on Chemicals and Products from Renewable Carbon is being held between the 30th October-2nd November 2012 at the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, St Simons Island, Georgia USA.
The event will be hosted by the University of Tennessee’s Centre for Renewable Carbon in partnership with the Southeastern Regional Sun Grant Centre, and will emphasize the latest developments on the transformation of renewable carbon building blocks to chemicals and materials, enabling the integrated biorefinery concept. The tentative sessions planned for the event are:
- Biorefinery concepts for chemicals and products
- From pretreatment to fractionation
- Chemicals from carbohydrates
- Catalysis in the biorefinery
- Advances in analytical techniques
- Chemicals from lignin
- Developing the industrial biorefinery
