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.


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

26 September 2014, Lyon, France

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

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.


Leading Enabling Technologies for Societal Challenges - (LET's)

29 September - 1 October 2014, Bologna, Italy

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

LET’S 2014 is an international Conference organised by the Italian EU Presidency, and supported by European Union Funding for Research and Innovation.

LET’S 2014 aims at discussing the role of the Key Enabling Technologies (Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing, Processing and Biotechnology), in bridging the gap between research and innovation. More than 1000 delegates from all over the world will discuss how Europe can support the growth and the creation of new jobs and face Societal Challenges through new products, processes and services, creating opportunities for European actors.


Chemical Building Blocks – building sustainable foundations for biobased chemicals

1 October 2014, Reims, France

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

This workshop aims to identify workable solutions to the major hurdles and concerns hampering the development of the biobased chemicals sector in the EU. We are especially interested in views on 3HPA, succinic acid, PDO, furfural, and isoprene as we consider these chemical building blocks to have the highest potential for deployment in the EU.Input from market, policy and technological experts within the area of chemical building blocks is crucial to allow us to develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry.

Chemical building blocks provide routes to a wide range of different products and chemicals and, in turn, an astonishing range of different downstream uses. Industrial biotechnology offers the potential for developing biobased chemical building blocks that can have new or improved functionalities compared to those which can be produced from fossil fuels or traditional chemical routes. Despite this potential, significant hurdles to the production of biobased chemical building blocks using IB processes exist in the EU.

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

10-13 September 2014, Kuta – Bali, Indonesia

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

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

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 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.


Open Architecture Control Systems Summer School

29 August - 2 September 2014, Międzyzdroje (Poland)

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

The iLOAD event will take place in Międzyzdroje, Poland, We would like to host all young researchers who are interested in control system issues and want to extend and share their knowledge and ideas. During our event there will be the possibility to become familiar with the latest trends in programming of National Instruments and ifm electronic equipment. An additional attraction will be a trip to Cargotec factory and visiting laboratories of the West Pomeranian University of Technology.


MMME 2014 - International Conference on Mining, Material and Metallurgical Engineering

11-12 August 2014, Prague, Czech Republic

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

MMME'14 is a comprehensive conference for sharing information, experiences, and advances in various theoretical and applied aspects of mining, material, and metallurgical engineering. We believe that the wide-ranging conferences such as MMME can have significant impacts by bringing together experts from the related different and often separated fields which help create unique opportunities for collaborations and shaping new ideas for experts and researchers.
