We invite you to a lecture by Manfred Kircher on “BioEconomy: Plastic Made from Sugar”, to be held at the Digital October Center on November 9th at 3:30 PM (CET), via videoconference. The lecture is part of the “Biotechnology” series of the Knowledge Stream project.
Using renewable energy sources is one of the most discussed issues of the twenty-first century. Why is there such a great need to create new materials and bioactive products from reprocessed raw materials? What are the processes agro-industrial raw materials go through before reaching the consumer market? How do you engineer efficient production and what is needed to make biotech projects commercially successful? Dr. Kircher and Russian experts invited to the lecture will discuss these and other questions.

A recording of the lecture is available below.
