What: Live Webcast of CRES Monthly Meeting:  

Biofuels Research by Mark R. Nimlos  

When: Thursday, Oct 24, 7:00 pm  – 9:00 pm


Colorado Springs location: Gill Foundation, Training Room, 315 E. Costilla St.

Pueblo location:  CSU-Pueblo, Technology Bldg., Rm. 110


Why: Driven by the desire to limit imported oil and legislative mandates, research is being conducted to investigate the use of biomass to produce liquid transportation fuels. This research involves studies of plant science, chemistry, physics and engineering, and to be effective, technoeconomic analysis must be conducted to address important cost drivers. This presentation will discuss some of the important research efforts in biofuels production and how they are tied to technical targets to improve the economic viability of biofuels.

Mark R. Nimlos is a Principal Scientist at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the National Bioenergy Center. He is the leader of the Gasification Modeling and Optimization Task for the Biomass Program at NREL. He is also leader of the Biomass Molecular Sciences Section in the National Bioenergy Center. He has worked NREL for 20 years and is currently active thermochemical and biochemical conversion technologies for biofuels. He received his Ph. D. in Chemical Physics from the University of Colorado and has over 70 publications in peer-reviewed scientific publications.
