Project Description

The overall objective of this project is to demonstrate the viability of Thermo-Depolymerization technology for processing lignocellulosic residue and waste biomass streams, particularly those characteristically produced in the state of Nevada and those available at a Sugars Platform biorefinery, directly into liquid fuels, uniform feedstocks for thermo-chemical conversion into syngas or stable bio-oil, and carbon byproducts.
