DOE Workshop On Biobased Functional Replacement Chemicals (Thu. 1 Jun, 2017 17:00 - 1:00)
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?
