Converting Poplar into Biofuels – Graduate and Postdoc Research

This special webinar will share the conversion research of Hanna Horhammer (Postdoc), Chang Dou (PhD candidate), and Oliver Jan (PhD candidate) from the University of Washington. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are critical to Advanced Hardwood Biofuels's (AHB) success. They are answering important questions for the potential poplar-based biofuels and bio-based chemicals industry. In turn, they are gaining experience on an applied, interdisciplinary project and are better prepared for careers in academia and industry.

The webinar will be divided into a series of short presentations that are tailored for a general audience. Topics include the concept of “poplar to biofuels,” biomass processing, and taking ethanol to jet fuel. Please join AHB to support these graduate and postdoc researchers and learn more about the challenges and solutions for turning poplar trees into fuels and chemicals!

Who Should Attend?
Researchers, bioenergy and wood industry representatives, policy makers, environmental professionals, community leaders, students, and extension professionals.

Presenters: Hanna Horhammer (Postdoc), Chang Dou (PhD candidate), and Oliver Jan (PhD candidate) from the University of Washington
