Outline of the workshop
The purpose of the meeting was to bring together leading European and international scientists with research expertise in plant biomass crops, biomass decomposition and fermentation, and fuel production. Leading scientists discussed the current state of the art and initiate the necessary multidisciplinary networks to tackle major bottlenecks in the sustainable and economically viable production of transport fuels from plant biomass. EPSO published a white paper arising from the meeting. This aims to establish the scientific cohesion and funding potential necessary for European scientists to make important contributions to sustainable energy production.
