Innovation in the bioeconomy Conference

The conference “Innovation in the bioeconomy: overcoming barriers for sustainable bio-based products and biofuels” organised by Greenovate! Europe took place on 12th April 2018 at the Hotel Marriott Renaissance, in Brussels.


Sustainable biomass that does not compete with food can be used in a wide variety of applications, including heating, transport fuel, or bio-based products. In our event we analyse the regulatory framework and the market barriers that impact the widespread uptake of products derived from sustainable biomass.


The event also gave an overview of the results of the 3-year research ButaNexT project, which made the process to produce bio-butanol cheaper and less energy-consuming. Bio-butanol can be used as a biofuel or to make bio-based products.



Additionally, several other EU funded research projects were showcased during a poster session.
