12th International Conference on Bio-based Materials

The "12th International Conference on Bio-based Materials" is aimed at providing international major players from the bio-based building blocks, polymers and industrial biotechnology industries with an opportunity to present and discuss their latest developments and strategies. The conference builds on successful previous conferences: 200 participants and 30 exhibitors are expected.

Date: 15-16 May, 2019
Venue: Maternushaus, Cologne Germany 

27th European Biomass Conference & Exhibition

The conference programme will address topics from biomass to bioliquids and biofuels for heat and electricity, transport and biobased products. It will cover all aspects of each value chain, from supply and logistics to conversion technologies, from industrial application of research results to impacts on the environment, from market and trade aspects to policy strategies, not least to the role of biomass as a source in integrated energy systems.

Date: 27-30 May, 2019
Venue: Lisbon, Congress Center CCL

International Workshop: Exploiting unproductive arid lands

Cactus is considered a promising crop as it is a xerophytic plant which is particularly adapted to arid lands and severely degraded soils that are unsuitable for traditional crops. The aim of this workshop is to present strategies towards the establishment of Opuntia and other crops in dry marginal lands of the Mediterranean. It is foreseen in this workshop to provide demonstration of the use of those crops, adding value to the final product, e.g. as food in a micro-scale processing chain, or as feedstock for bioproducts, biomaterials or bioenergy, with the goal to provide job and small business opportunities at all social levels.

Registration is free. Lunch is at own cost. The number of participants is limited to room capacity

Date: 17t April, 2019
Venue: Sala de Reuniões do Dep. de Química (217-D), FCT NOVA, Campus Caparica, Lisboa

Invitation to submit your paper on perennial Grasses!

Agriculture is facing a wide range of challenges due mainly to climate change, rapid population growth and dietary habits, and emerging markets. In this context, the concept of multifunctional agriculture has emerged, as integrative strategies to increase the overall productivity of cropping systems. Perennial grasses (Poaceae or Gramineae family) have been identified as the most resilient crops to various abiotic stresses and the candidate feedstock for a number of different end-use applications. You also do research in the field of the specific topic of perennial grasses for biomass and non-energy applications? You would like to submit your paper? Feel free to contact us and publish your papers on the journal Agriculture MDPI!
