Abstract

The processing of renewable resources into fuels and value-added products consisting of fuels, chemicals, materials, and coproducts is receiving renewed emphasis as a consequence of the science and technology that is improving our understanding of the complex and heterogeneous characteristics of biomass. Furthermore, the catalysts as well as the processes in which these catalysts are used are also advancing. This is resulting in the potential to manufacture a wide range of products. Examples include cellulosic nanomaterials through insightful application of selected enzymes,(1,2) production of fermentable sugars, and generation of low-carbon-footprint biofuels either through biological conversion or thermochemical processing.
