DOE Workshop On Biobased Functional Replacement Chemicals

DOE Workshop On Biobased Functional Replacement Chemicals

Friday, May 5, 2017 

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) is hosting a Workshop on Moving Beyond Drop-In Replacements:  Performance Advantaged Bio-Based Chemicals on June 1, 2017, in Denver, Colorado.  The purpose of the workshop is to solicit stakeholder feedback on what research and development is necessary for writing a functional replacements and novel biobased compounds strategic plan.  The discussion, which will be restricted to polymers, small molecules, and other building block chemicals, will center on the following questions:​

  • Would a strategy document for bio-based novel compounds and functional replacements be useful? What would it look like?

  • What is the best strategy for developing a bio-based novel compounds and functional replacements guiding document?

  • What are the biggest challenges in identifying novel compounds and functional replacements?  

  • What are the most critical properties to screen for when developing screening protocols?

  • How can BETO best bridge the gap between those producing novel bio-based compounds and those who need novel compounds or replacements for their formulations?

Registration is available online.
