2nd International Conference of the Cluster of Excellence “Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass (TMFB)”

On the 16th–18th June 2014, the Cluster of Excellence “Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass (TMFB)” at RWTH Aachen University will organize it’s 2nd International Conference on Biofuel production and combustion. After their International Workshops were turned into an open Conference for the first time in 2013, the Aachen scientists continue to transfer their interdisciplinary research approach to their International Conference which is organized in different sessions that reflect the research structure of the Cluster of Excellence:

 The following topics will be addressed in separate sessions during the conference:

• Biomass Fractionation and Pre-treatmentTailor Made Fuels from Biomass Conference Germany

• Enzymatic and Catalytic Biomass Processing

• Catalytic Synthesis and Conversion of Biomass-based Streams to Platform Molecules and Fuels

• (Bio-)refinery Process Optimization

• Injection, Ignition and Combustion of Biofuels

• Combustion Process and Exhaust Gas After treatment Optimization of Biofuels

Call for Papers: If you would like to contribute to this conference with a presentation of your work in one of the above fields, please send in a one-page summary of your topic – click here for full details on how to submit.  The deadline for submission is the 31st January 2014.
