Natural Fibertastic Event
2018’s Fibertastic brought together more than 150 attendants from 5 different countries. The theme mostly focused on building and civil projects. This year we will look at how design and marketing
effects our products and what the chances are. Of course related to products that are made of lignocellulosic fibers. We’ll look at issues in scaling up, the sectors paper, composites, asphalt and concrete and compare them cross border.

EnOp CO2 Reuse Conference
On May 7th 2019 the EnOp CO2 Reuse Conference themed ” Implementing CO2 as Carbon Source: Success Stories and Future Technologies” will be held. At this interactive meeting the academic world will meet with corporates to discover how they can collaborate in using new technologies. Are you interested in renewable energy, energy storage or exciting new chemistry with CO2 and want to make a difference?

The carbon cycle on our planet is disrupted as the natural system is unable to deal with the huge amounts of CO2 that are emitted due to our lifestyle. Restoring the carbon cycle is essential to create a sustainable environment on planet earth. Use of CO2 as a carbon source while storing renewable energy in this process, could contribute substantially.

New technologies that can handle large amounts of CO2 are needed to restore the carbon cycle. Where do we stand in developing such technologies? The Interreg project EnOp aims to bring some of these technologies to a next stage in its development. During the CO2 Reuse conference we will update you on all interesting opportunities for the nearby and long term future.

8th International Bioeconomy Conference
The ScienceCampus Halle and the Leading-Edge Cluster BioEconomy cordially invite you to the 8th International Bioeconomy Conference in Halle on 13 - 14 May 2019. The motto this year is “Bio meets Economy – Science meets Industry”.

The conference was first held in 2012 and is now regarded as one of the most important bioeconomy events in Germany. Every year it brings together internationally renowned representatives of science and industry to discuss the latest research findings, innovations and current developments on the market.

The bioeconomy has broad-ranging approaches for plant research, for agriculture and forestry, for the chemical and plastics industry, the energy industry and innovative materials. The 8th International Bioeconomy Conference in major topics represents new issues and insights: International experts will speak about sustainability and socio-economical aspects, biobased value chains, biorefining, high value products and about stress tolerance and productivity of plants. The Partner region in 2019 will be South Amerika.

12th International Conference on Bio-based Materials (BMC)
Evolution of the Bioeconomy: Survival of the Fittest? Learning from Success.
Despite the harsh environment, a few innovative companies find markets for their new bio-based building blocks, chemicals and polymers. We will introduce you to the technology leaders our planet needs for a sustainable future.
Today, PLA is produced by two leading companies, bio-based PBS has become commercially available and soon the first bio-based PP will enter the market while bio-based PE production capacities are expanded at the same time. Bio-based polymers can be found in almost all application sectors, such as packaging, consumer goods, toys, automotive, textiles or coating. New bio-based building blocks are also available for body care, cosmetics, food ingredients and pharmaceuticals. On top of that, more and more biogenic side streams from the food industry are utilised via biotechnology as part of the circular bioeconomy.
Every year the Innovation Award “Bio-based Material of the Year” is given to the most innovative material and product on the market. In 2019, six companies will be nominated by an expert jury, out of which the winner will be chosen during the conference. Join one of the biggest B2B events of the year and experience the most exciting new developments and strategies in bioeconomy.

1. Branchentreff Klebstoffformulierung
Am 15./16. Mai 2019 wird erstmalig ein Branchentreff zur Klebstoffformulierung am Fraunhofer IFAM in Bremen ausgerichtet. Der »1. Branchentreff Klebstoffformulierung« richtet sich an Hersteller von Rohstoffen und Klebstoffen sowie Interessenten aus dem Bereich der Klebtechnik. Er bietet Entwicklern von Kleb- und Dichtstoffen sowie Rohstoffherstellern eine Plattform, um in einen intensiven branchenübergreifenden Erfahrungsaustausch zu treten.

Geplant ist eine jährlich stattfindende Veranstaltung zu wechselnden Themen rund um die Formulierung von Kleb- und Dichtstoffen. Im Fokus des 1. Branchentreffs steht das Thema »Biobasierte Rohstoffe für Kleb- und Dichtstoffe«.

Das diesjährige Programm umfasst Fachvorträge zu verschiedenen Aspekten von Klebstoffen auf Basis nachwachsender Rohstoffe. Rohstoffhersteller stellen ihre »biobasierten« Produkte vor. Des Weiteren wird über Klebstoffe auf Basis nachwachsender Rohstoffe berichtet, die bereits verwendet werden. Komplettiert wird das Programm durch Einblicke in den neuesten Stand der Forschung und Entwicklung in diesem Fachgebiet.

Die zweitätige Tagung mit Abendveranstaltung bietet Raum für vertiefende Diskussionen und Networking in angenehmer Atmosphäre.


  • Wo können nachwachsende Rohstoffe sinnvoll eingesetzt werden?
  • Welche Trends zeichnen sich ab?
  • Neue Rohstoffe und Additive auf Basis
  • Biobasierte Klebstoffe und Beispiele für ihre Einsatzgebiete
  • Oberflächenvorbehandlung unter Verwendung von Naturprodukten
  • Highlights aus der aktuellen Forschung
