On April 24, join the Chemical Catalysis for Bioenergy (ChemCatBio) Consortium and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office for the “Technology Options for Catalytically Upgrading Biochemically Derived 2,3-Butanediol from Lignocellulosic Biomass Feedstocks to Advanced Biofuels and Chemical Coproducts” webinar.
Recent advances in the fermentative production of 2,3-butanediol (BDO) from mixed sugars generated via pretreatment and enzymatic saccharification of lignocellulosic biomass have positioned BDO as an attractive biochemically-derived intermediate for advanced biofuels and chemicals production. Within ChemCatBio’s Catalytic Upgrading of Biochemical Intermediates project, research teams from multiple national labs have been collaborating on the development of catalytic upgrading routes for this key intermediate.
In this presentation, multiple national laboratory investigators will discuss recent progress in collaborative efforts to develop economically-viable BDO catalytic upgrading technology options in a robust manner using commercially-relevant process streams.
