The conference aims to enable researchers to build connections between different digital applications. The event will be held over three days, with presentations delivered by researchers from the international community, including presentations from keynote speakers and state-of-the-art lectures.


CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology

24 September 2014, Lyon, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

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 CO2 based chemicals production 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.

CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 holds great potential as a feedstock for chemicals production using IB processes, especially in the EU where the research base is strong and where there is an abundance of CO2 available. CO2 is not part of the food chain so avoids any issues over food v fuel. However, public perception, and logistical and cost challenges in terms of CO2 transport and distribution could hamper the potential of CO2 to be used for chemicals and substantial R&D is needed to bring many opportunities to fruition.

Horizon 2020: Transforming Global Challenges into Opportunities for Growth

Growth and Jobs have to become the new mottos of the EU. In line with the priorities of, and in the framework of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU, TECHITALY 2014 offers a unique opportunity to mobilise public and private sectors to transform global challenges into economic opportunities.


Experts will discuss, during three different roundtables, on the most advanced approaches to three selected topics (cyber security, healthy ageing, raw materials) of high impact for European society and industry. Special attention will be paid to innovation processes, leading edge technologies and, where necessary, on requests of new legislative frameworks.
