Biofuels provide energy from geologically recent carbon fixation in plants and microalgae – and they promise a sustainable and ecologically sound alternative to fossil-oil and gas for industrial feedstocks. The case for utilization of biomass is strengthened by the remarkable success stories and recent innovations in production of materials and commercially viable chemical intermediates from bio sources. These materials are gaining in market share due to their performance in addition to their green credentials. This symposium focuses on innovations in biofuel and biomaterial development and commercialization.
