  • Conference: 2nd Annual Hybrid Processing


Iowa State University’s Hybrid Processing group of Zhiyou Wen, Laura Jarboe, and Zhanyou Chi are hosting the 2nd Annual Hybrid Processing for Biorenewable Fuels & Chemicals Production Symposium at Reiman Gardens, May 15-16, 2013 in Ames, IA.  This workshop is supported by Iowa State’s Bioeconomy Institute,  Office of BiotechnologyPlant Sciences Institute, and the Iowa Energy Center.

Hybrid Processing is a combination of thermochemical biomass deconstruction and biological utilization of the resulting sugars, organic acids and syngas.  ISU currently has a well-established program on thermochemical processing, therefore, our hybrid program’s focus is on the biological side, i.e. syngas fermentation and bio-oil fermentation.  The goal of the workshop is to develop collaborations in this research area.

Please register for this 2-day workshop featuring speakers from Iowa State University, USDA Agricultural Research Service, Washington State University, and Kiverdi.  Researchers, graduate students and industrial representatives are all encouraged to attend; poster presentations are also encouraged.
