The Network is pleased to announce the course on “From biomass to bioproducts” to be held in San Sebastian on April 30th, 2018.
Lignocellulosic biomass is an alternative, promising,renewable and vast resource for the production of biofuels, chemicals and polymers. The efficiency and sustainability of their use must be forecasted with the aim to reduce and valorise these feedstocks.
The change toward a bioeconomy involves the replacement of fossil by biomass resources which allow the production of commodities within the framework of a sustainable development. In this context, bioproducts are expected to grow significantly in the coming years and increase their share of the global production.
This course is aimed at professionals and post‐ graduate students, and its main objective is present the latest development in the field of conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to platform chemicals, fuel and polymers using sustainable biorefinery processes.
The speakers of the course have extensive and recognized experience in the field of biomass revalorization.
