Synopsis

The main focus of this event is on the UK role for biomass conversion, and the business and commericial implications of the technologies being developed.

This conference will explore the commercial potential for processing plants and for brand owners, including:

What are the opportunities?

How is the market developing?

What are the options for the supply chain?

Attendees

This one day meeting is intended for people who want to learn more about the commercial potential of the next generation of biorenewable energy, materials and fuels based on biomass; biochemical engineers; business and commercial managers; policy managers; academics in the field (re: market development); R&D managers; marketing and business development managers; technical and operations managers; investment decision makers.

Call for Posters
