BioREFINE-2G: Utilisation of Waste Streams for Bioproducts and Bioenergy

Monday 12 June 2017 
13:00 - 17:00
Room: K22

The project BioREFINE-2G aims at developing commercially attractive processes for efficient conversion of pentose-rich side-streams from biorefineries into dicarboxylic acids, which can be used as precursors for bio-based polymers including biodegradable polymers.

This workshop will present and discuss results from the BioREFINE-2G project with focus on innovative approaches and value chains towards the efficient utilisation of biorefinery waste streams for bioproducts and bioenergy.

Overview of the JRC Biomass assessment study

Tuesday, 13 June 2017
Room: K16

The workshop intends to provide an overview of the JRC Biomass assessment study and its state of play.
The objective is to share the current results and have an open discussion on uncertainties and possible approaches to overcome the current knowledge gaps. To this aim, selected results from the EU funded project S2Biom will also be presented and discussed, seeking for synergies and boundary conditions of both approaches for EU level assessments.

Wood Stoves 2020 - Towards high efficiency and low emissions

Tuesday 13 June 2017 
13:30 - 17:00
Room: K22

The ERANET-Project "Wood Stove 2020" has made a comprehensive development approach to provide technological solutions for improved log wood stoves. The scope of the technical measures is wide, it includes stove development by CFD, catalyst integration or retrofitting, identification of suitable sensors and integration into automatic control systems, improving stove efficiency by PCM heat storage and by preventing standing losses via the chimney. The goal is to reach an emission reduction of 50 – 80%, compared to the current staate-of-the-art, and to increase stove efficiency by 8 %.

Round Table on Bioenergy for Sustainable Development

Tuesday, 13 June 2017
Room: K13

This Roundtable will offer an opportunity for in-depth discussion of the briefing paper on Bioenergy for Sustainable Development, featured in the EUBCE edition of BE-Sustainable, which was jointly developed by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the IEA Technology Collaboration Programme on Bioenergy (IEA Bioenergy) and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Future Biorefineries from raw materials to bio-products: development and analysis

Thursday 15 June 2017 
09:00 - 15:00
Room: K22

The workshop will host contributions on biorefinery development projects.

The inspiring principle is that not only technology development, but also process integration, life cycle and environmental impact analyses must be considered in the design and realization of future sustainable biorefineries. The event is hosted by the BioBuf consortium, composed by researchers from Chalmers University of Technology and RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) developing a biorefinery study in which forest residue and micro-algae are converted to adipic acid, aromatic and other added-value chemicals.

Please note that this Programme may be subject to alteration and the organisers reserve the right to do so without giving prior notice.

Organise a workshop or a project meeting or your own event during the 25th EUBCE.

This would get you good exposure in a biomass event with over 1.500 participants from both research and industry, with high visibility and the opportunity to reach the most important international key players and get in touch with leading stakeholders. Meeting rooms will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

You can choose to have a closed meeting or to open the meeting to interested conference delegates.
