Reviewing the Efforts to Develop Commercially Viable Biological Pathways to Cellulosic Ethanol Production
June 6 3:30PM
Featuring presenters from industry heavyweights, this panel will explore in depth the state of the research and development of biological processes and products aimed at unlocking the fuel potential of crop residues rich in cellulose and hemicellulose. Attendees will be brought up to speed on the latest research and learn which strategies and partnerships are being pursued to bring products to the marketplace that will enable producers to deliver commercial volumes of cellulosic ethanol to a waiting fuel market.
