It will also cover process fundamentals of biomass for energy generation and high value bioproducts.
Student learning goals
General method of instruction
Lectures by the two instructors; some homework problems. Assigned readings and class discussion by students will also be involved.
Students should have a science and engineering background and interest for this course. Basic course work in chemistry (inorganic and organic), physics, and engineering fundamentals such as thermodynamics will be useful in assimilating the course material.
