报告人简介:

Bioprocessing of cellulosic biomass for fuels and bioproducts

Dr. Jian Shi, University of Kentucky

There are urgent needs to address some of the societal and sustainability challenges in the food, energy, and water (FEW) nexus. The research schemes under bioprocess engineering are well suited to these research demands. Dr. Shi’s research aims to understand and develop novel bioprocesses for the production of biofuels, bioproducts, and renewable materials by exploring the interface between chemistry, engineering and biology. Some of his specific research areas include 1) lignin valorization in ionic liquids, 2) biomass conversion and product recovery, 3) waste treatment and conversion, and 4) bioprocessing for BioAg applications. Ionic liquids (ILs) have received increasing interest because of their potentials in fractionating and pretreating lignocellulosic biomass. Furthermore, given the unique properties of aqueous ILs that provide for lignin solubility and biocompatibility to enzymes and microbes, we are developing a new strategy for lignin extraction and depolymerization via catalysis and biocatalysis in aqueous ILs. This talk will present our recent research outcomes in integrating biomass feedstock development, biomass fractionation and characterization, product recovery and IL recycle.
