Profile: 5th Latin American Congress on Biorefineries – From laboratory to industrial practice

Type of post: EVENT PROFILE.

The BioRefineries Blog proudly announces its media partnership with the 5th Latin American Congress on Biorefineries, a great platform for multidisciplinary dialogue and discussion on the advances of the biorefining sector. There will be 3 days of keynote lectures, oral presentations, poster sessions and parallel activities that will highlight new processes and products.

The global paradigm shift from an oil-based production towards a biomass-based production represents a unique chance to start a competitive bioeconomy with significant societal benefits. Biorefineries are in the heart of this transition and their development provides exciting opportunities to generate differentiated products with a low ecological footprint and widespread market acceptance. After years of scientific and technological research, industrial applications are becoming an attractive reality. The congress will be a showcase of those applications.
