Woody biomass can be converted into a variety of biofuels and biochemical. Researchers at the University of Washington are fine-tuning the process to convert hybrid poplars into acetic acid, ethanol, jet fuel, and other products. This webinar takes a step-by-step look at how lignocellulosic biomass is converted to chemicals then biofuels.
