Better Chemistry for a Sustainable Future.


This Xylochemistry site grew out of the program funded by the University of Alabama, RG14648 “Technology for a Sustainable Chemical Economy” - StanCE.  The international StanCE Consortium seeks to foster research directed toward developing a sustainable chemical infrastructure and economy based on the utilization of wood and related biomass as a feedstock.

StanCE Consortium members seek not only to develop better chemistry for a sustainable future, but also to foster scientific and cultural exchanges between center participants.  Between 2013 and the present a total of 22 personnel exchanges have taken place between member laboratories in the U.S., Germany, and Japan.  Though all academic levels have been represented in these exchanges, the vast majority (15) have taken place with young scientists (undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral).
