New DOE website for CCPC bioenergy tech launched

In Washington, D.C., the relaunch of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Consortium for Computational Physics and Chemistry (CCPC) website features updated content on this breakthrough research that uses high-performance computing to accelerate development and scale-up of industrially relevant bioenergy technologies.

The CCPC constructs and utilizes computational models to discover new materials for bioenergy applications and assist in the cost-effective scale-up of bioenergy technologies to commercially relevant scales. The research is performed in close collaboration with experimentalists in the U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), and the combination of theoretical-based models and experimental approaches leads to a robust understanding of bioenergy technologies.

Find more details on how researchers are using computational models to optimize biofuel production processes from atoms all the way up to large-scale reactors.

New website features:

  • Updated information about research activities across all stages of the biomass conversion process.
  • Links to a wealth of online tools and data.
  • A searchable and sortable publications database.

CCPC is led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in collaboration with experts at five additional DOE national laboratories and is funded by DOE’s Bioenergy Technologies Office. The consortium focuses on critical technologies for biomass-to-energy pathways.
