Converting biomass to hydrocarbon fuels will be discussed in Richland on Tuesday by Karthikeyan Ramasamy, a research chemist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

Ramasamy will give an overview of chemical conversion methods to change biomass, such as grass clippings or corn stalks, into a renewable liquid fuel that can be used in cars and trucks without increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide.

The talk is sponsored by the Richland Section of the American Chemical Society as part if its Science Cafe Series. It will be at 6 p.m. at the Richland Library, 955 Northgate Drive.
