BRIAN H. DAVISON Oak Ridge nationwide Laboratory MARK FINKELSTEIN nationwide Renewable strength Laboratory CHARLES E. WYMAN Oak Ridge nationwide Laboratory The Eighteenth Symposium on Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemi­ cals maintains to supply a discussion board for the presentation of study effects and the trade of rules on advances in biotechnology for the produc­ tion of fuels and chemical compounds. even supposing the emphasis is on usage of renewable assets, the scope of the Symposium is broader than this and contains bioconversion of fossil fuels and syngas and the hot quarter of conversions in nonaqueous environments; those components have been mentioned in consultation five and in a distinct subject dialogue staff on the Symposium. additionally, contemporary advancements in bioremediation have been good represented in consultation 6 and within the poster consultation. The Symposium concerned either the improvement of latest organic brokers (such as enzymes or microbes) to hold out distinct conversions in addition to bioprocess improvement. the 1st sector coated advancements in enzymes in addition to basic insights into substrate-enzyme inter­ activities and photosynthesis. The latter region serious about changing one fabric into one other utilizing organic brokers via combos of chemical engineering, organic sciences, and fermentation know-how. This region additionally refers to an total processing related to no less than one bio­ logically catalyzed step together with different actual and/ or chemi­ cal processing operations. Agricultural plants, resembling corn and corn fiber in addition to woody biomass and lignocellulosic wastes, are emphasised for method feedstocks and their pretreatment investigated.
