CO2 Utilization: What are the bottlenecks and how can they be tackled through EU policy?

26 September 2014, Lyon, France

SCOT (Smart CO2 Transformation) is a project to develop the Strategic European Research Agenda aimed at improving the technical and economic performance of emerging CO2 transformation technologies.

It gathers five regions which are strongly committed and already well advanced in this emerging area of CO2 utilization (Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and UK) and it is the first ever European initiative in the field of CO2 utilization strategy. While we prepare our Joint Action Plan and the Strategic Research Agenda, we want to gather stakeholder views on what are the key policy bottlenecks and their potential solutions. Thus, you are invited to register for this event and engage in the discussion.

CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology

24 September 2014, Lyon, France

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.

1st International Conference on Engineering, Science & Technology Innovation (ICESTI 2014)

10-13 September 2014, Kuta – Bali, Indonesia

ICESTI 2014 will provide a forum for accessing the most up-to-date and authoritative knowledge from both industrial and academic worlds, sharing best practice in the field of Engineering, Science, and Technology towards sustainable development.

The conference will provide an opportunity to highlight recent developments and to identify emerging and future areas of growth in these exciting fields. The first event of this conference series (ICESTI 2014) will be held in Bali, Indonesia, on 10-13 September 2014. ICESTI organizing committee are inviting submissions from scientists, academicians and industry practitioners worldwide.

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.
