MASBio 2022 Seminar Series

We are excited to announce our 2022 MASBio Seminar Series. 

The seminar is available to the public. 

Each week this seminar in biorenewables will examine topics that are central to the practical development of the bioeconomy in the region. Topics include feedstocks, supply chain, conversion processes, and system life cycle and technoeconomic feasibility. Weekly seminars will be presented by faculty researchers at universities and research labs involved in the MASBio effort. 

Presentations and a short discussion after will be held every Monday from 12:20 pm to 1:10 pm ET beginning January 17th.
