April 18, 2019
Des Plaines, IL

GTI is pleased to announce tcbiomassplus2019, the sixth international conference on thermochemical conversion science. tcbiomassplus2019 incorporates two added emphases to the event’s focus: conversion of municipal solid waste (MSW), and renewable natural gas (RNG) as an end product of thermochemical conversion. The program will be driven by the conference theme, "Real World Solutions Through Green Technology."

The biennial conference will take place on October 7-9, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, IL, USA, conveniently near O’Hare International Airport and the Rosemont CTA station, which offers easy access to downtown Chicago.

The tcbiomassplus2019 Technical Program Committee is now soliciting abstracts of 250 to 300 words by May 8, 2019. Researchers and technology developers can take advantage of the opportunity to share process innovations, improvements, and insights. The conference will also host a competitive Student Poster Challenge to help connect top engineering students with global bioenergy experts. Winning individuals or teams will be awarded with cash prizes and international exposure. Students interested in participating should submit their abstracts by May 8, 2019.

Abstracts will be peer reviewed and selected as either oral or poster presentations. Submitters will be notified of their abstract status in June 2019.

Vann Bush, GTI's Vice President of Technology Development and Commercialization, and Kyriakos Maniatis, the European Commission’s Principal Administrator of Biofuels and Polygeneration, will return as conference co-chairs.

This scientific forum follows the success of the previous five events, which have garnered attendees from over 25 countries and 200 organizations, including laboratories and universities from around the world. In addition to three days of peer-reviewed presentations, tcbiomassplus2019 also marks the return of Virtual Tours, giving attendees an inside look at thermochemical conversion facilities in the U.S. and abroad.

Sponsorship and exhibit opportunities are also available. Current sponsors and more information can be viewed on the tcbiomassplus2019 conference website.
