Live Webinar on Ionic Liquid Pretreatment
The Energy Department , sponsored by EERE’s Bioenergy Technologies Office, will present a live webcast titled “Ionic Liquid Pretreatment Technologies” on Monday, June 24, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. EDT.
Dr. Blake Simmons of Sandia National Laboratories will present on the discovery, design, and optimization of an ionic liquid pretreatment technology. This technology will allow for efficient processing of hardwoods, softwoods, agricultural residues, and other energy crops for later conversion to biofuels and bioproducts. By advancing research on this technique, Sandia is further contributing to the Energy Department’s goals of creating reliable, sustainable, domestic biofuels.
