BIO-QED stakeholder workshop

Workshop starts at 14:00, location: Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany
May 10th, 2017

What is the project about?
Opening new industrial routes for the production of the important chemicals BDO and IA from renewable sources rather than petrochemical sources is, in summary, the aim of the BioQED project. In this EU FP7 project, 13 partners from 7 countries (Italy, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Croatia, Spain and the USA) bundled their strengths to successfully create value chains starting from the renewable resource all the way to the finished product such as latex polymers from alkyl itaconates. BioQED is on its way to successfully bring products from industrial biotechnology laboratories to the market by scaling up its production to demo plant level. So join this workshop to get involved.

What is the workshop about?
This workshop will be organized in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on Bio-based Materials. Both high-level events will focus on bio-based building blocks and platform chemicals. After a short overview of the project and the market for the BioQED platform chemicals BDO and IA, the rest of the workshop will focus on the applications of these value chains. Workshop participants will not only have the chance to network and discuss at the workshop coffee break together with the BMC-participants, at the end of the workshop they will also have the possibility to get to know other promising technologies and innovative ideas at the presentations for and the election of the “Bio-based Material of the Year“. At the BMC-conference dinner the workshop participants will have another networking opportunity with the other BMC-participants.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn, discuss and network with the leading players in the bioeconomy!
