Cal ACS invites you to join us for a unique tour of LBNL’s Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts Process Development Unit (ABPDU) in Emeryville, CA.  Program Manager James Gardner, Senior Process Engineer Dupeng Liu, and their colleagues will introduce us to this cutting-edge facility, which works with other laboratories and companies to develop the next generation of sustainable manufacturing processes. You will hear from experts about continuous bioprocessing, purification methods, and more.

We will meet at Summer Summer Thai Eatery (5885 Hollis St #50, Emeryville CA 94608), at 5 PM for drinks and a buffet dinner.  Tour groups will leave at 5:30, 6:00, and 6:30 PM to visit the ABPDU facility next door.  It is essential that you reserve for your preferred tour time, because this is a Federal facility and you must provide your name and country of citizenship in advance.  The tour is free but Cal ACS is charging for this event to help cover the restaurant rental and food costs: $30 for professional members and $15 for students or unemployed members.  Please use this link to register for this event. Deadline for reservations: Sunday, May 5th.

Since ABPDU is a working process development facility, visitors are required to wear CLOSE-TOED shoes.  Sandals are not permitted.  Other personal protective equipment (face goggles) will be provided onsite.

Note: if you show up without a reservation, you are welcome to join us for the buffet dinner and networking, but it will not be possible to accommodate you on the tour.
