Thermal & Catalytic Sciences Symposium

05 Oct, 2020 - 07 Oct, 2020
Location: Kennewick, USA

The Thermal and Catalytic Sciences Symposium has been held every other year following the first symposium held in 2010 at Iowa State University with the goal of focusing on thermochemical biomass research and development and providing early career scientists and engineers an opportunity to present their research and interact with the senior researchers in the community.Conference Topics
