National Program 213: Biorefining
Teleseminar Series on Chemical Conversion Technologies

A joint effort by USDA and DOE to disseminate information about new non-biochemical technologies to convert agricultural materials to fuels and power. Examples of such technologies include gasification, pyrolysis and aqueous reforming using either catalytic or non-catalytic approaches. Participants are experts in these fields, and anyone wishing to participate can e-mail Robert.Fireovid@ars.usda.gov
