BRIAN H. DAVISON Oak Ridge nationwide Laboratory MARK FINKELSTEIN nationwide Renewable power 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 alternate of rules on advances in biotechnology for the produc­ tion of fuels and chemical compounds. even though the emphasis is on usage of renewable assets, the scope of the Symposium is broader than this and comprises bioconversion of fossil fuels and syngas and the recent sector of conversions in nonaqueous environments; those parts have been mentioned in consultation five and in a different subject dialogue workforce 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 recent organic brokers (such as enzymes or microbes) to hold out detailed conversions in addition to bioprocess improvement. the 1st quarter lined advancements in enzymes in addition to basic insights into substrate-enzyme inter­ activities and photosynthesis. The latter sector thinking about changing one fabric into one other utilizing organic brokers via mixtures of chemical engineering, organic sciences, and fermentation expertise. This zone additionally refers to an total processing related to a minimum of one bio­ logically catalyzed step together with different actual and/ or chemi­ cal processing operations. Agricultural vegetation, resembling corn and corn fiber in addition to woody biomass and lignocellulosic wastes, are emphasised for approach feedstocks and their pretreatment investigated.
