Designed to be accessible to non-experts and the commercially-minded, this course describes the variety of feedstocks, routes and processes through which biomass can be converted to valuable fuels (with particular focus on transport fuels); along with the market limitations, opportunities and economics associated with them. It provides an excellent basic grounding for attendees from a variety of sectors, including biomass supply, distribution, processing and end-use; plus investors and policymakers across the supply chain.
Level & Style
Although the course includes scientific and technical information and terminology, we assume no prior technical knowledge – indeed a key aim is to demystify, for commercial business-people, the terminology and language you will encounter within the bioenergy industry.
The course runs in a friendly, informal manner, encouraging discussions and questions to ensure that participants get the most out of their time.
