European Bio Economy Venture Forum
The European Bio Economy Venture Forum aims to support the world-wide efforts towards a green economy, while maintaining well-being within the limits of our planet and protection of human health and the environment.

It UNDERLINES the importance of the waste hierarchy in supporting the transition to the CIRCULAR ECONOMY, starting with an increase in prevention, preparation for reuse and recycling of waste, and minimizing waste disposal, in particular through a significant reduction of landfilled waste.

+30 companies active in the high technology sector will be selected to present at the Forum by the Selection Board, who will assess them on the basis of their business potential, technology merit, competitive position, investment interest and team experience. They will meet with international investors and coporates during the two day event incl. a networking dinner.

Bio Economy includes:

  • Recycling of nutrients
  • Agritech
  • Waste management
  • BioEnergy
  • Food protein
  • Biotech
  • Pharma & Cosmetics
  • Materials and more.

Bio Economy Definition as per European Commission's COM(2012)60:

‘‘The bio economy is encompassing the production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into food, feed, bio-based products and bioenergy. It includes: agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food and pulp and paper production, as well as parts of chemical, biotechnological and energy industries. Its sectors have a strong innovation potential due to their use of a wide range of sciences (life sciences, agronomy, ecology, food science and social sciences), enabling and industrial technologies (biotechnology, nanotechnology, information and communication technologies (ICT), and engineering), and local and tacit knowledge’’

The role of entrepreneurs, industry and investors is essential to the successful development of a knowledge-driven economy in the Bio Economy sector and the European Bio Economy Venture Forum will offer a unique platform for stakeholders to exchange knowledge and build long lasting business cooperation.

17th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization - ICCDU 2019
The 17th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU XVII)

CO2 utilization is moving from research to industrial application. Join the most famous academic conference on carbon dioxide capture, utilization and strategy-related aspects and learn more about carbon dioxide utilization from the perspective of industry, science and policy! Present your work on CO2 utilization at ICCDU 2019 and discuss your results with an interdisciplinary network of experts.

Key topics

-CO2-capture & separation CO2-reforming
-CO2 to carbonates
-CO2 as Working Agent
-CO2 to chemicals
-CO2 conversion to polymers
-CO2 activation
-Biotechnological CO2 conversion
-Electro- and photo-catalysis
-Applications of plasma technologies for CO2 conversion
-Power to X
-LCA/TEA
-Public acceptance
-Policy aspects

From science to industrial application

The goal of the conference is to highlight research projects on Carbon Dioxide Utilization in all levels of maturity. Carbon dioxide can be used for many synthesis routes in the chemical industry. The spectrum of research in the field ranges from fundamental to applied science. Products like fuels, polymers, or building materials from CO2 are no longer a dream. Furthermore, the CO2 utilization roll-out has begun first applications are about to enter the market. Meet the industry and get in touch with successful companies at the forefront of sustainable chemistry.

Economics and environmental impacts as well as policy aspects

CO2-emission reduction targets and the goal to substitute fossil carbon for the production are two challenges that can be addressed by CO2-utilization technologies. Therefore, CO2 utilization will play a major role in the efforts of the society towards a more sustainable world, fighting climate change and reducing the dependency on fossil resouces.Furthermore, economical and policy aspects become essential for stakeholders.

Learn more about CCU from the perspective of environmental scientists, economists and politicians.

The International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization has been organized since 1991 in different parts of the globe, since 2015 as an annual event.

EFIB
Industrial Biotechnology is currently worth €23 billion representing just 6% in sales of the overall worldwide chemicals market. However, it is significantly out-performing the overall chemicals market at an impressive 20% annual growth rate and has the potential to become the dominant technology of tomorrow’s chemicals industry, representing a huge future opportunity.

Delivering on this opportunity will require significant investment, innovation and value chain development and most importantly new collaborations across the sector. Additionally we are faced with important challenges posed by high energy prices, the impact of the shale gas boom on the development of biobased chemicals markets and the ongoing need for predictable, coherent and supportive policy in the EU.

In order to understand and overcome these challenges and prosper in tomorrow’s bioeconomy, for more than ten years, industry experts throughout the vibrant and innovative biobased community have come together to one central location every year to discuss the key issues and gain a snapshot of the most significant developments on scale up of commercial biorefineries around the world.

That location is the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology & the Bioeconomy (EFIB), where delegates are provided with an update on the status and outlook of biobased industries. EFIB is proud to foster engagement between policy makers, a broad range of stakeholders connected with the existing biobased value chain and seeks to reach out to, and include, new interlocutors.

In the last decade, EFIB delegates, exhibitors, sponsors and speakers have been showcasing innovative products and processes that deliver solutions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Last year, we celebrated the Industrial biotech communities’ latest achievements in harnessing the power of innovation to deliver solutions to global grand challenges. Influential brands and industry leaders met in Toulouse, France, with a broad range of stakeholders and policy makers to discuss the transformative potential of Industrial Biotechnology to create a smarter and more sustainable future.
