Dr. Robert Brown of Iowa State University will speak on “Thermochemical Processing of Biomass” for the spring seminar presented by the NSF CREST Bioenergy Center.
The seminar will be held on Thursday March 28, 11:00 a.m., in the New Science Building Room 200.
Thermochemical processing uses heat and catalysts to transform biomass to fuels and biobased chemicals. Thermochemical processing includes gasification, pyrolysis, and solvolysis, each of which has its advantages and challenges. Dr. Brown’s talk will provide an overview of these processing options along with the results of recent studies at Iowa State University.
Dr. Brown is Anson Marston Distinguished Professor of Engineering and Gary and Donna Hoover Chair in Mechanical Engineering at Iowa State University. He is the director of ISU’s Bioeconomy Institute and the Center for Sustainable Environmental Technologies. His research focuses on the thermochemical processing of biomass and fossil fuels into energy, fuels, and chemicals.
Researchers from Carnegie-Mellon University, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, and N.C. State University highlight the schedule for the Department of Biology’s spring seminars.
The series begins next week on Wednesday, January 30, with Dr. Teresa L. Leavens, Research Assistant Professor, North Carolina State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, speaking on the development of physiologically based pharmacokinetic models for drug delivery toward specific diseases.
The weekly seminars are held on Wednesdays in Barnes Hall, Room 224, from noon to 1 p.m.
Some government agencies and businesses aren’t waiting for the energy industry to start delivering on the promise of biofuels. Increasingly, in North Carolina and other states, they’re moving ahead on their own.
Their progress will be the subject of the second annual statewide conference on civic and small-scale biofuel projects, to be held next month at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering.
The event is organized by the Biofuels Center of North Carolina and is hosted by N.C. A&T and the Joint School. It will feature talks and case studies on smaller-scale biofuel and biomass production projects operating in North Carolina (including Charlotte, Hickory, and Raleigh), Florida, and Alabama.
Speakers will include officials of state and local government agencies, the private sector, and universities.
The conference will be held Thursday December 13, beginning at 10 a.m. It will conclude with a 3 p.m. tour of biofuel and bioproduct research and development projects at the JSNN. There is no fee to attend. Registration information and the full agenda are at the conference website.
The full title of the event is “Civic and Small-scale Biofuels Statewide: A Second Annual Convening of Civic, Production, and Agency Parties.”
Worth noting: Some places aren’t quite ready to move on such opportunities. A local case in point is reported in today’s edition of the News & Record.
An interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has launched a five-year, $5 million project to make the production of advanced biofuels more efficient and affordable.
The NSF CREST Bioenergy Center’s goal is to make biomass a more viable source of renewable energy by developing the basic science and technology that will make energy conversions more efficient and costs more affordable.
The center is conducting fundamental research toward the development of advanced thermochemical biomass conversion technology to produce liquid transportation fuels and hydrogen.
The project is funded by the National Science Foundation’s Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) program.
The center’s research will specifically target the production of high quality synthesis gas from biomass gasification, nanocatalysts for the conversion of syngas to bioethanol, and the production of high purity hydrogen for fuel cell applications.
Heads up, researchers using recombinant DNA technology or genetic engineering.
Also anyone who ships or receives regulated plant biological material, those involved in field releases of plant biotechnology, regulators, and interested health and safety professionals.
The Department of Animal Sciences is hosting a free Biotechnology Summer Workshop next Monday and Tuesday.
And today (Thursday July 5) is the last day to register.
The two-day workshop is a collaboration between Dr. M Worku and the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services (APHIS) Biotechnology Regulatory Services (BRS).
Details from the organizers:
Day 1 is presented by Dr. Worku. Day 2 is presented by USDA APHIS BRS.
There will also be an opportunity for workshop participants to have their USDA Level 2 Authentication accounts validated during Day 2 of the workshop.

Individuals interested in attending the workshop must register by July 5, 2012, via email to email@example.com. Please indicate which days you will be attending (Day 1 and/or Day 2). There is no fee to attend.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Worku at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336 334-7615, extension 202.
