The conference will discuss the regulatory framework and the market barriers that impact the widespread uptake of products derived from sustainable biomass, with speakers from the industry, research organisation and the EU institutions. Learn how innovation can unlock market opportunities for SMEs while at the same time contributing to a greener economy!

The event will also be an opportunity to present the results of the 3-year research ButaNexT project, which made the process to produce bio-butanol cheaper and less energy-consuming. Bio-butanol can be used as a biofuel or to make bio-based products.

A poster session will host several EU funded research projects in the field of the bio-economy and biofuels, and will give you the opportunity to find out what is at the forefront of European innovation.
