Conference on Cellulosic Biofuels

Conference on Cellulosic Biofuels

 

Organized by The Institute for Massachusetts Biofuels Research (TIMBR)

Those interested in the Commonwealth’s developing biofuels industry are invited to participate in the annual Conference on Cellulosic Biofuels. The conference is hosted by The Institute for Massachusetts Biofuels Research (TIMBR) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. TIMBR is a growing interdisciplinary research group focused on expanding biofuels research on the Amherst campus and enabling translational research through strategic partnerships between academia, industry, and state and federal government (www.ecs.umass.edu/timbr).

During the conference you will hear about the latest developments in biofuels research, learn about the opportunities that lie ahead for biofuels in the region from state policy makers, and connect with others from industry, academia, and government who are eager to expand their network of partners and collaborators in the biofuels industry. Topics covered will include emerging research in catalytic and microbial routes to biofuels, the Massachusetts biofuels industry, and more.
