Valley of the Diols: The Digest’s 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to producing PDO and HDO from biomass

January 25, 2018 |

Can you build a catalytic process to produce alpha, omega diols from lignocellulosic biomass? Such a process, using inorganic catalysts for conversion of biomass into 1.5 pentanediol (PDO) and 1,6 hexanediols could reduce the cost of cellulosic biofuels.

In this DOE-supported project, a team led by George Huber at the University of Wisconsin is developing the process, experimental data, techno-economic model to so convert white birch and corn stove. The project is winding up this month, and Huber and team prepared this illuminating overview of the project’s promise and progress for DOE Project Peer Review meetings.
