Biofuel is one of the potential alternative energy resources that can be derived from renewable and low-grade origin through different processes. Catalysts play an important role in the production of biofuel. In this webinar organised by Catalysis SIG and Clean Energy SIG, you will get to dive into the latest development of catalysis science and technology for biofuel production.

This webinar is aimed at those with an interest in the area of catalysis and clean energy, including PhD students, early career researchers and academics. Through the keynote from Prof Patricia Thornley and six 20-minute presentations, key technologies and trends will be communicated to attendees.
