ECO-BIO 2016 (March 2016)
With fossil fuels becoming more and more limited and global change having unmistakable effects on our everyday lives, working toward a suitable future for both humans and all ecosystems of the world becomes essential. Biobased Economy focuses on developing industrial viable, safe and ecologically friendly biobased (renewable biological sources) solutions to build a sustainable society, involving food, chemicals, energy and materials. Complementing these technological developments are insights and discussions on societal, economic and environmental relevant and interdisciplinary topics such as ‘Cradle-to-cradle’, ‘green or circular economies’, ‘climate change mitigation’, ‘energy and food security’, ‘resource efficiency’, ‘sustainability in general’ and ‘resource, food and product safety’.
This conference will be a first of its kind and will highlight the emergence of the research and innovation field, where we are today and what needs to be done to develop an economically feasible, safe, sustainable, and ecologically friendly biobased future. The conference will be a platform to further the discussions on this highly societal relevant topic.
Combining industrial needs with an approach from an academic, environmental and societal point of view is a new approach and we welcome your participation and views.
Abstracts are invited by 11 September 2015 on the following topics
- Industrial biotechnology
- Environmental biotechnology
- Fundamental research in biobased economy
- Sustainability and biobased economy
- Innovation in biobased economy (workshop)
