TCS 2014: Symposium on Thermal and Catalytic Sciences for Biofuels and Biobased Products

Join us at tcs2014, a biofuels conference that focuses exclusively on thermochemical processing of biomass into fuels and chemicals. The program will feature speakers discussing recent scientific developments in this rapidly developing field.

This forum offers a mix of plenary sessions featuring leading experts in the field, interactive breakout sessions, and ample opportunities to network with colleagues. The last day of the symposium will offer tours of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Program topics include:

  • Advances in pyrolysis and solvent liquefaction
  • Advances in gasification
  • Catalytic upgrading of bio-oil and syngas to fuels and chemicals

Our keynote speakers have been announced. A complete agenda will be posted here when it is finalized.

Participants will include academic, government, and industry researchers who are making thermochemical processing one of the most exciting developments in advanced biofuels.
