报告一：Wood palletization research in UBC（Dr. Shahab Sokhansanj）
报告二：Quality improvement and management of lignocellulosic waste biomass（Dr. Anthony Lau）
Dr. Shahab Sokhansanj：is the Research Leader, Biomass & Bioenergy Research Group (BBRG) at the University of British Columbia. Prior to joining UBC in 2002, Dr. Sokhansanj taught agricultural engineering at the University of Saskatchewan where he holds the title of Emeritus Professor. Dr. Sokhansanj retired recently from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) where as a Distinguished Research Scientist he engaged in research on biomass preprocessing and supply logistics. Dr. Sokhansanj holds an Adjunct Professor appointment in Chemical & Biological Engineering at UBC supervising a team of post doctorals and students on wood pellets and supply systems modeling. Dr. Sokhansanj hold fellowships in Engineering Institute of Canada, Engineers of Canada, Canadian Society of Bio Engineering, and American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. Dr. Sokhansanj received the 2016 International Bioenergy Conference and Exhibition’s Founders Award. The Award recognized Dr. Sokhansanj’s contribution to the development of engineering science around pellets and pellet industry. Dr. Sokhansanj is an active member of the BioFuelnet Canada.
Dr. Anthony Lau：is an associate professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of British Columbia. He is a member of the China-Canada Joint Centre for BioEnergy Research and Innovation, and member of the Biomass and Bioenergy Research Group within the Clean Energy Research Center at UBC. His research interest is in the area of organic waste management for resource recovery, focusing on two major sub-areas: biomass feedstock engineering; and bioconversion processes and systems. Biomass feedstock engineering may include the preprocessing, storage and quality improvement and management of lignocellulosic waste biomass as some of the major components of the supply chain logistics. Studies on bioconversion processes and systems are primarily aerobic composting and anaerobic digestion of non-woody waste biomass.
