Energy Systems/Policy Brown Bag Lunch Seminar Series
January 12 @ 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM - Potter Engineering Library, room 234-Fu Room
The Energy Center is pleased to announce a new seminar series for the Spring of 2012: The Energy Systems/Policy-Seminar Series. We are pleased to welcome many speakers campus wide to the series and look forward as they share their knowledge and research experience. The bi-weekly series will begin on January 12 and conclude April 26, 2012, occurring the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.
The event will kick off with Dr. Maureen McCann the Director of the Energy Center and the Center for direct catalytic conversion of biomass to biofuels (C3Bio). She will speak on the center and its activities.
Please come, listen and join in the conversation and discussion at this brown bag lunch series. You are welcome to bring along anyone else who might enjoy these fascinating topics.
C3Bio is an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the US Department of Energy, to conduct high-risk, high-reward research for the future deployment of advanced liquid transportation fuels. C3Bio aims to develop transformational technologies for the direct conversion of plant lignocellulosic biomass to hydrocarbon-rich biofuels and other biobased products, currently derived from oil.
C3Bio’s vision is to become a recognized leader in integrative fundamental knowledge and enabling technologies for the direct catalytic conversion of engineered biomass to advanced biofuels and value-added coproducts.
The research mission of C3Bio, defined by its research program funded by DOE, isto maximize the energy and carbon efficiencies of biofuels production through the rational design of physical and chemical conversion processes and new biomass.
