From fossil to the future – with bioeconomy and biotechnology

On March 7 and 8, 2023, the Fraunhofer UMSICHT, CLIB – Industrial Biotechnology Cluster and 3N Kompetenzzentrum e.V. will organize the congress "BIO-raffiniert XII" in Oberhausen. Topic: "From fossil to the future – with bioeconomy and biotechnology". The twelfth event of the congress series thus spans the arc from today's predominantly fossil raw material supply to biobased concepts of the future. See the program structure of the congress below and apply for a presentation!

The process industry today still relies primarily on fossil raw materials. A transformation towards regenerative resources, in particular renewable raw materials, is under way. In addition, circular economy, recycling and resilience play important roles in existing and new value chains. The congress "BIO-raffiniert XII" takes up these topics and focuses on innovative technologies, sustainability strategies as well as logistics and supply chains. Its focal points will be: Bioeconomy – Strategy and Implementation, Transformation Pathways and New Value Chains. Regional as well as international developments will be addressed.

Call for Papers

We invite interested experts to present their innovations, concepts or industrial practice solutions around the bioeconomy transformation in the context of short presentations in English (10 min presentation). The deadline for proposals outlined in a one-page abstract is Friday, September 23, 2022.

Please send your abstract to joachim.danzig@umsicht.fraunhofer.de.
