Event Report: Biorizon Forging Ahead with Bio-Aromatics Upscaling

With over 150 visitors, the annual event of Shared Research Center Biorizon at the end of November was well-visited. The bio-aromatics event highlighted the upscaling efforts currently underway in the three research directions or ‘horizons’: the production of bio-aromatics from sugars, lignin and biomass residual flows (via pyrolysis and gasification).

CLIB International Conference 2020 | Biotechnology: Building foundations for future generations

Shared Research Center Biorizon will be giving a presentation at the "CLIB International Conference 2020 | Biotechnology: Building foundations for future generations". Since 2009, the CLIB International Conference is the meeting place for the industrial biotechnology community. Being the first bioeconomy symposium of the year, it brings together international experts from all over the world in Düsseldorf, Germany. The first day of the conference will take up the two megatrends of digitisation and accessing alternative protein sources through biotechnology to nourish the fast-growing world population. Furthermore, an interdisciplinary panel discussion will cover the topic public perception of bioeconomy, asking the question if we are still fighting a battle already lost. The second conference day will address three areas with high relevance to the bioeconomy: future bioeconomy education programmes and their requirements, the biotechnological utilization of CO2, as well as the application of aromatics from lignin especially in the growing adhesives market.
