tcbiomass2015—the biennial international conference on thermochemical (TC) biomass conversion science—will bring together the world’s experts in biomass gasification, pretreatment, pyrolysis, and upgrading to explore the progress in the field of bioenergy. The conference will take place 2-5 November 2015 at the Westin Chicago River North hotel situated in the heart of downtown Chicago, IL USA.
Developments in the conversion of renewable resources into a variety of fuels, chemicals and energy products is driving the emergence of an increasingly diverse and significant bioeconomy. Thermochemical processes extract maximum product yields from biomass resources. Taking Technology for the Bioeconomy as the overall theme, tcbiomass2015 participants will hear the latest research, development, and deployment results for thermal biomass conversion and upgrading technologies and systems to help grow the bioeconomy and achieve a clean and sustainable energy future.
This conference is all about the technology, and will host 3-days of peer-reviewed scientific presentations and posters on the latest industry developments that enable production of clean heat and power, transportation fuels, chemicals, char, and other high-value products. The event will kick-off with a welcome reception on the evening of Monday, 2 November, and end Thursday, 5 November. An optional biorefinery pilot plant tour will take place on Friday, 6 November at Gas Technology Institute (GTI).
