The workshop will showcase invited talks by leading researchers who will provide insight into emerging technologies and discuss novel solutions to the critical obstacles for biodiesel production. The workshop will provide a great opportunity for early career researchers to obtain a foundation in the field and/ to update their knowledge on the latest technology and approaches for biodiesel production.
This is a two day workshop with workshop starting at 11.30am – 6pm on the 24th April. One-night accommodation will be covered by the organisers (if participant is travelling from outside London) in addition to a gala dinner on the 24th April. The workshop will resume on the 25th April from 9am and concluding at 2pm.
This session will be run on the first day afternoon after the refreshment break. If you are presenting a poster, it is important to print your poster in advance and arrive early to erect your poster. The poster boards will be numbered and you should follow instruction when you arrive. There are poster prizes for the best and runner up posters, selected by a judging panel. Prizes will be awarded at the closing session on the 25th April. Please confirm your participation by submitting an abstract of the poster. Please note that abstracts must be sent by email to Omar Aboelazayem by 4th of March.
The workshop will also include two technical sessions on the recent biofuels research methodologies. The first session will include the principles of experimental design, modelling and analysis. It will also cover the applications of Response Surface Methodology (RSM) in process modelling and optimisation. The second session will include the foundations of process simulation and integration with a focus on advanced process integration using a novel graphical Pinch method. In summary, the technical sessions are aimed to assist biofuels researchers in the following points;
