Lignocellulosic materials provide a raw material source for biofuel conversion and offer several advantages over fossil fuels- usage of a renewable resource, reduced greenhouse emissions, a decreased dependence on foreign oil, and stimulation of the agricultural sector. However, a primary technological challenge in converting lignocellulosic biomass into fuel is overcoming the recalcitrance of its matrix to enzymatic hydrolysis. To overcome these problems for chemical processing, naturally occurring cellulose biomass must be pretreated before it can be further processed using enzymatic hydrolysis or bioconversion.

The purpose of this course is to provide a comprehensive overview of biomass energy crops, conventional and emerging pretreatment technologies, their effectiveness, models for prediction, scale-up opportunities, economics, and outlook for the future.

Course Outcome

After completing Biomass Treatment Technologies students will be equipped with a basic understanding of the following:

  • lignocellulosic biomass
  • energy potential
  • pretreatment technologies
  • conversion cost and scale up
  • outlook for the future
  • Agenda

  • Audience
