The National Advanced Biofuels Consortium (NABC) is investigating six process strategies to convert lignocellulosic biomass feedstock to biofuels that are compatible with the existing transportation infrastructure. These new and innovative technologies can advance the commercialization and adoption of advanced biofuels.
The National Advanced Biofuels Consortium is investigating these biofuel-conversion technologies:
The consortium will perform cross-cutting research on feedstock logistics, pretreatments, separations, upgrading, pyrolysis fundamentals, engineering and sustainability analysis, and refinery integration. NABC will complete this research in two stages.
