Biomass is a wonderful resource to be transformed into chemicals, biobased materials, food and feed ingredients or energy. Still, adaption and optimisation of transformation processes and technologies is a real challenge in order to valorise all biomass fractions in a circular approach. In the context of Industry 4.0, Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) provide the basis for innovation in a range of products across all industrial sectors. They underpin the shift to a greener economy, are instrumental in modernizing the industrial base, and drive the development of entirely new industries.


BIOKET, the BIOeconomy Key Enabling Technologies conference, aims to contribute to the rise of KETs by promoting emerging KETs applied in the bioeconomy sector. The first edition of BIOKET gathered +300 key players of the sector. The second edition, BIOKET 2021 promises to once again be an uplifting conference dedicated to processes and technolgies applied to biomass. BIOKET 2021 runs from 16-18 March 2021 in Lille, France.

What to expect?


  • Keynotes: an inspiring and targeted conference program which will tackle topics such as advanced and innovative biomass pretreatment; technologies for biomass conversion and functionalization; extraction, separation and purification of biomass; process modelisation and analytical methods and tools; innovative tools; design of bioprocesses, advanced fermentation
