Abstract submission is now closed


tcbiomass2015 Technical Program Committee invites you to share your latest breakthroughs, experiences, and innovations with the global bioenergy industry. 

Researchers, scientists, engineers, technicians, and others can take advantage of the opportunity to share your knowledge with technical and strategic decision-makers and strategists. We are looking for abstracts in the following technology areas:

  • Biomass availability, logistics, characterization and pretreatment for thermochemical conversion
  • Gasification technologies and processes
    • Heat and power
    • Transportation fuels
    • Chemicals, materials and intermediates
  • Pyrolysis technologies and processes
    • Heat and power
    • Transportation fuels
    • Chemicals, materials and intermediates
  • Novel technologies and process
  • Policy, deployment and markets


We ask those submitting abstracts to also identify sector(s) of the bioeconomy for which their technical work is focused: clean heat and power, transportation fuels, chemicals, solid carbon materials, or other products. These application themes will be an element, along with the technology area, in the organization of the technical program for the tcbiomass2015 conference.
