What is it about?

We describe the synergistic impact of mixed pretreament methods upon a biogas production potential. Realizing such a statement also requires collaborative partnerships to maximize expertise and build communities of practice. We also share how we approached supporting renewable materials research and development.

Why is it important?

This research is important because there is a need to support development that is affordable and can meet the challenges of wicked problems to achieve the sustainable development goals and education (such as the global action plan). Further, global sources of biomass hold the potential to makes fuels, chemicals and materials to make our world a more sustainable place to live.


We provide framework perspective not only by sharing our means of collaboration but by also illustrating state of the art means to asses biogas potential, biomass pretreatment, and modeling anaerobic digestion processes. These technical considerations in practice can also be framed with larger social impacts, yet, there are few examples of larger systems evaluation. Our perspective calls for strengthening related evaluations.
