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 substances. even supposing 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 quarter of conversions in nonaqueous environments; those parts have been mentioned in consultation five and in a unique subject dialogue team 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 advance of recent organic brokers (such as enzymes or microbes) to hold out designated 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 fascinated by 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 regarding no less than one bio­ logically catalyzed step together with different actual and/ or chemi­ cal processing operations. Agricultural plants, corresponding to corn and corn fiber in addition to woody biomass and lignocellulosic wastes, are emphasised for procedure feedstocks and their pretreatment investigated.
