Catalysis on a Hot Tin Roof: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to the ChemCatBio Consortium

Submitted by on August 3, 2017 – 11:02 amNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  ChemCatBio is a research and development consortium dedicated to identifying and overcoming catalysis challenges for biomass conversion processes. Led by U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories, the consortium works “with industry to rapidly transition R&D discoveries into commercial processes and grow the bioeconomy in the United States.”

The current research focus encompasses five themes: Upgrading of synthesis gas and synthesis gas-derived intermediates; Catalytic fast pyrolysis; Hydroprocessing of fast pyrolysis and catalytic fast pyrolysis bio-oils; Upgrading biogenic carbon in aqueous waste streams; and Upgrading of lignin, carbohydrates, and other biologically derived intermediates.

This overview on the consortium was presented at the DOE’s Project Peer Review in Denver this year.  READ MORE
