Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to see articles in the intellectual space from raw materials (any form of biomass), to extraction and separation into components, to conversion of intermediates into final products.  The products do not have to be biofuels if the products are renewable in origin and substitute for fossil fuel derived products.  Engineering work applicable to any of the component operations are also appreciated.   We would also be interested in articles showing that more sophistication in product development could lead to greater returns.  An example here might be furfural production from xylose as a more valuable product than fermentation of xylose to ethanol as well as showing that this might be an energetically preferable way to produce furfural.
