2023FVSP 439 - Bio-based Renewable Materials and Energy

Ended Aug 10, 2023

Sorry! The enrollment period is currently closed. Please check back soon.

Full course description

The course emphasizes technical/scientific aspects of producing renewable bioproducts (e.g., bioenergy, biofuels, bio-based materials) derived from plant biomass to displace existing fossil-derived products.  The course content will cover both biochemical (chemical treatments followed by enzyme-mediated bio-deconstruction) and thermochemical (thermo-conversion of biomass into solid, liquid and gas) approaches that produce these renewable products that have low carbon intensity.
