Changing Paradigm in Environmental Engineering Research: From Waste Treatment to Bioenergy and Value-added Product Recovery

Samir K. Khanal, Assistant Professor
Department of Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering
University of Hawaii at Manoa

We are faced with concerns of climate change, increased global demand on
fossil fuels, national energy insecurity, and continuous exploitation of
limited natural resources. Sustainability requires research efforts that
will address growing energy insecurity, global environmental issues, and
depleted natural resources. This presentation is about a new paradigm:
converting low-cost solid, liquid and gaseous feedstocks into
bioenergy/biofuel and biobased products.
