Lignin Valorization towards fuels, chemicals & materials

The first FALCON workshop is titled “Lignin valorization towards fuels, chemicals and materials” and will be held January 30 in Gent. Biomass of all types becomes increasingly important to provide biofuels, materials and chemical building blocks. This is a must to create a sustainable society, to reduce waste and to meet the targets for minimizing climate change. The European Union’s 2020 Research and Innovation Programme is funding this transition which is urgently needed and which has consequences for the chemical and energy sectors.     One of the projects funded is the FALCON project (http://www.falcon-biorefinery.eu/ ; Grant Agreement nr 720918) which focuses in particular on valorization of lignin which is the most recalcitrant component in plant biomass.  As biorefinery strategies for biomass treatment and its upgrading are essential to realize viable processes, the FALCON consortium decided to organize a one-day Workshop with experts in the field as confirmed speakers. This event also offers a nice opportunity for participants to meet experts and expand their network. Programme:   9:30 – 10:00      Coffee  10:00 – 10:45     Paul J. de Wild - Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands 10:45 – 11:30     Martin Hofrichter - TU Dresden 11:30 – 12:15     Speaker to be announced            12:15 – 13:30     Lunch    13:30 – 14:15     Bert Sels – KU Leuven    14:15 – 15:00     Bastian Lehrheuer - RWTH Aachen University      15:00 – 15:20     Tea         15:20 – 16:05     Dominique Lachenal - Grenoble - INP More info via this flyer & subscription via http://shop.fungalbiodiversitycentre.com/meetings/7.html
