tcbiomassplus2019 The International Conference on Thermochemical Conversion Science:
Biomass & Municipal Solid Waste to RNG, Biofuels & Chemicals

October 7-9, 2019 | The Hyatt Regency O'Hare | Rosemont, IL

Real World Solutions Through Green Technology

tcbiomassplus2019 focuses on the science of thermochemical conversion of biomass and municipal solid waste (MSW) to renewable gas (RNG), liquid fuels, and chemicals. This international event draws attendees from around the world, with past conferences including representatives from Brazil, China, Finland, Germany, India, New Zealand, South Africa, Sweden, and over 20 other countries.

This unique conference highlights the science of thermochemical conversion and real commercial opportunities for deployment of this technology. In 2019, the program has been expanded to include MSW as a feedstock, and to feature RNG as a product of thermochemical conversion in addition to liquid fuels and chemicals.

The tcbiomassplus2019 Technical Committee has assembled an agenda that includes 62 oral presentations, divided into three plenary sessions, plus breakout sessions on upgrading, pyrolysis, hydrothermal liquefaction, gasification, and mixed waste conversion. Poster presentations will also be on display, as well as a student poster contest offering cash prizes to winning students.

In addition, tcbiomassplus2019 will feature two panel discussions, highlighting expected trends in the world of bioenergy. One panel will focus on expected regulatory trends for biofuels and biomass conversion, while the other will center around commercial thermochemical biomass conversion trends.

Beyond the technical presentations, poster presentations, keynote speakers, and panels, tcbiomassplus2019 will offer a number of networking opportunities. A welcome reception will kick off the event on the evening of Sunday, October 6 in the Ventanas rotating bar which provides a panoramic view of the Chicago Skyline. On Tuesday, October 8, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the foods that made Chicago famous with a windy city-themed culinary experience, complete with live music and tours of several of GTI’s state-of-the-art energy laboratories.
