The Forum on Emerging Technologies – What’s on the Horizon?
Renewable Oils for Biobased Products
Organizer: José Olivares, Biofuels Program Lead, Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA
The session focused on developing an understanding of the oils from non-traditional renewable sources, e.g., cellulose, castor, jatropha, algae, etc. This included the characteristics of these oils and issues and challenges presented in developing these feedstocks. We moved on to understanding bioproduct development from these feedstocks, including cosmetics, nutraceuticals, chemical products and other high value products.
