The Ghent Bio-Economy Summer School 2012 was held at Ghent University, Belgium, between the 7th-10th August 2012. The event presented a comprehensive and integrated overview of the bio-based economy by world-leading experts, covering the complete process of biomass to bioproduct.
Green Chemistrysponsored a poster prize at the event which was awarded to Julien Cousin Saint Remi, a PhD student at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in Belgium, where he is developing new and innovative techniques for the downstream processing of biobased products. He was awarded the prize for his poster ‘Recovery of biobutanol from ABE-fermentations with zeolites’ and received a copy of the book ‘Thermochemical conversion of biomass to liquid fuels and chemicals’ (pictured right receiving his prize from Professor Tom Desmet, chair of the organising committee). Many congratulations to Julien on receiving this prize.
