Moving Towards a Competitive European Bioeconomy: Emerging Biorefinery Technologies & Pathways to Deployment
For Europe to move towards a competitive bioeconomy, is it is essential that biorefinery technologies developed in the lab and at pilot scale are upscaled and deployed at an industrial scale. Industry and policy makers must work together to create commercial pathways to this greener future – but how?
This interactive event brings together researchers, industry leaders and policy makers to discuss how the European bioeconomy can take green technology from idea to deployment and who needs to do what to make this happen.
13:00 Introductions and keynote from the EU
13:30 Technical sessions – project achievements Feedstock, processes and new products Interactive session with audience Q&A
15:00 Coffee break
15:30 First panel session From idea to deployment – an industry view
16:15 Second panel session Rollout of biorefinery technology – policy perspective
The event is organised by two EU-funded SPIRE projects, Bio4Products and Rehap, both successful in identifying biomass availability and developing innovative new conversion processes and bio-based products. The projects have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreements number 723070 and 723670 respectively.
