The Bioeconomy Institute has announced its sponsorship of tcbiomass2015, the fourth international conference on thermochemical biomass conversion science, to be held Nov. 2-5, 2015. BEI expects more than 20 of its faculty, scientists, staff, and students will be attending the conference, many of which will present papers and posters about their research.
“Iowa State University usually has the largest presence of any educational institution at this important event in our industry,” said Robert C. Brown, BEI director and professor of mechanical engineering at Iowa State. “It’s a great chance to show our leadership in thermochemical conversion research to industry and government.”
Driving the Bioeconomy
The conference should attract over 300 attendees from around the world. It brings together experts in biomass pretreatment, gasification, pyrolysis, and upgrading. The biennial conference will take place at the Westin Chicago River North in Chicago, IL.
The theme for this year’s event is “Technology for the Bioeconomy.” It will cover developments in the conversion of renewable resources into a variety of fuels, chemicals and energy products, which is driving the emergence of an increasingly diverse and significant bioeconomy. Thermochemical processes that employ heat and pressure extract maximum product yields from biomass resources.
Abstracts Due April 10, 2015
Researchers, scientists, engineers, technicians, and others are encouraged to submit abstracts by April 10, 2015.
