14th International Conference on Renewable Resources & Biorefineries

The 14th edition of the International Conference on Renewable Resources & Biorefineries will take place in Ghent, Belgium from Wednesday 30 May until Friday 1 June, 2018.

The conference is expected to welcome about 350 international delegates from university, industry, governmental and non-governmental organizations and venture capital providers who will present their views on industrial biotechnology, sustainable (green) chemistry and agricultural policy related to the use of renewable raw materials for non-food applications and energy supply. The conference further aims at providing an overview of the scientific, technical, economic, environmental and social issues of renewable resources and biorefineries in order to give an impetus to the biobased economy and to present new developments in this area.

Green Chemistry is pleased to be supporting the event by providing three poster prizes.

Preregistration closes on 29 May 2018. Register now!
