50th Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology
7-10 September 2014, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The Conference aim is to “Advance Science for Human and Environmental Health” and we have an exciting programme highlighting new and innovative science and current regulatory topics. There will be a mix of plenary and keynote lectures, symposia, workshops and a full continuing education programme. In addition, there will be interactive poster sessions and a dynamic trade exhibition. EUROTOX 2014 will be THE meeting place for toxicologists from around the world to come together to meet and discuss the key issues facing the discipline today.

The Biocidal Products Regulations
9-10 September 2014, Barcelona, Spain
This year Informa Life Sciences is delighted to announce the 21st annual conference of the Biocidal Products Regulation ( previously the BPD conference) will take place on the 9th -10th September 2014.
The conference will be held in Barcelona, Spain and we do hope that you are able to join. For 21 years we have run this event and have seen many changes, listened to informative presentations and researched with industry to develop a conference that interests, informs and allows industry to meet in one location to discuss one topic , that of the BPD BPR Guidance updates, regulatory insight and critical advice to ensure you remain compliant with the BPR.
34th International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants – Dioxin 2014
31 August - 5 September 2014, Madrid, Spain
Dioxin 2014 will continue in the tradition of precedent Symposium Series as the leading international conference for scientists and regulators to present recent advances in all areas of halogenated persistent organic pollutants. The Symposium will offer a high quality scientific programme combining both traditional topics and emerging issues. The scientific programme will be completed by special satellite events and by exhibitors presenting latest equipment and services in the field of Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants.
5th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress
31 August - 4 September 2014, Istanbul, Turkey
The biannual EuCheMS Chemistry Congress is a major scientific event where the latest progress in all areas of chemistry will be presented by eminent speakers from all over the world. Two of the highlights of this 5th edition of the ECC will be the European Commission Joint Research Centre session as well as a session with Prof. Bourguignon, President of the European Research Council.
Use of IB in Biosurfactants
3 September 2014, Berlin, Germany
The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in bio-surfactants and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps being developed as part of this project.
Biobased surfactants can be produced either from oils and fats via oleochemical production or from sugars, e.g. molasses by fermentation. Biobased surfactants can be used for a wide range of applications, the largest of which are currently detergents, followed by personal care products and industrial and institutional cleaners. The BIO-TIC project estimates that in 2030 the biobased surfactants market in Europe could have a market value of between 0.8 MEUR and 1.8 BEUR. The market value could be greater than this if the various hurdles to biosurfactants are addressed.
