Low Carbon Chemical Feedstocks for a Bioeconomy

This event is very much focused on networking and building cross-sector, cross-discipline collaborations between:
feedstock producers (biomass, organic wastes, CO2)
innovators working in conversation technologies (bio, chemistry, eng) of biomass, algae, wastes, CO2, CO; and
end-use sectors (chemicals, fuels, personal care, etc).
We want to bring a mix of people together from industry and research who are interested in different feedstocks and conversion technologies because these groups don’t often meet together. 1:1 meeting opportunities will be provided.

We will have a range of interesting keynote presentations, including senior industrialists and Government, followed by quick-fire presentation sessions on the The Market Perspective, an Innovator Showcase and Regional Perspectives.

The day will culminate with a panel discussion to discuss the key challenges and opportunities in scaling up chemistry/IB processes to support a bioeconomy in the UK.

I attach the latest draft programme so you can see how the day will pan out. Please do not circulate this widely as as not all speakers are confirmed. Confirmed speakers so far include representatives from: BEIS, CRODA, Shell, CPI, Nova Pangaea, Green Lizard Technologies, Uni York, CHAIN Biotech, TeesValley, BEACON, IBioIC, Biorenewables Development Centre…more to follow.
