6th Biorizon Annual Event on Bio-Aromatics: Scaling Up Research

On November 27 and 28 2019 Shared Research Center Biorizon will host its 6th Biorizon Annual Event on Bio-aromatics in Antwerp. Large industry players, Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SME's) and Research and Technology Organisations (RTO's) from all over the world will be present to discuss the latest progress in the field of bio-aromatics and to elaborate on the opportunities to accelerate biobased business together.

  • On Thursday, 28 November 2019 Biorizon will be hosting this event at the Radisson Blu Astrid Hotel, right across Antwerp Central Station. 
  • The night prior to the event (Wednesday, 27 November 2019), Biorizon invites you to a complementary networking dinner
  • Hotel room reservations have been arranged (limited availability & at your own expense).

Biorizon would like to thank the BIOPEN platform & Vanguard Initiative for sponsoring this event. 


We have an impressive program this year, with presentations from small companies to large brand manufacturers showcasing the latest innovation in renewable aromatics. A panel of experts will discuss the impact of scaling up the production of bio-aromatics on the global chemical industry - a conversation you won't want to miss! 

The program on Thursday, 28 November 2019 includes:

  1. presentations by industry thought leaders such as Anellotech and Kaneka;
  2. in-depth information on the progress that Biorizon has made in the technology development of functionalized biobased aromatics: 3 industry presentations by Biorizon partners;
  3. pre-arranged bilateral matchmaking sessions to discuss opportunities to collaborate.

Furthermore, there will be a substantial amount of time to talk to companies, stakeholders and researchers in an informal setting.


  • This event is open to all companies that represent the bio-aromatics value chain (agro/feedstock, producer, end user, brand owner). If you represent such a company, you are cordially invited to participate.
  • Other stakeholders (technology/service/knowledge, government, other) can also apply for a seat at this exclusive event. 
  • Due to limited space we urge you to register as soon as possible. We will formally confirm participation by the end of October.
  • This event is free of charge, however a no show / late cancellation fee applies.

We hope to see you in Antwerp!
