Tailoring Biomass to Fit the Biofuels Pipeline

Submitted by on January 23, 2011 – 5:17 pmNo Comment

by Dr. Maureen McCann (Professor, Purdue University) Dr. McCann begins by describing the different plant cell wall architectures belonging to various types of feedstock.  She shows how different processing methods can be utilized to more efficiently process biomass into biofuel.  By building this knowledge base, biofuel production methods can be custom tailored to best suit the specific feedstock to end-product processes.

McCann’s presentation includes numerous unique photos, pictures and diagrams of different cell wall structures as well as flow diagrams representing catalytic conversions and process flows.
