Cellular and tissue engineering

Metabolism and bioprocessing

Cellular and tissue engineering

Metabolism and bioprocessing

Mathematical modeling of biosystems

The principal technological barriers and the underlying scientific limitations associated with efficient processing of biomass resources into finished fuels:  Need attention "The limiting factor to biofuels production is simply that low-cost processing technologies to efficiently convert a large fraction of the lignocellulosic biomass energy into liquid fuels do not yet exist."

The main areas where research needs to be focused on are :

Selective thermal processing of cellulosic biomass and lignin

Utilization of petroleum refining technologies for biofuel production

Liquid-phase catalytic processing of biomass-derived compounds

Catalytic conversion of syngas

Process engineering & design

Crosscutting scientific issues

Advance catalyst systems for petroleum processing
