Join the ButaNexT workshop on Advanced product recovery!

The ButaNexT project is pleased to invite you to its workshop on Advanced Product Recovery, on the 11th of May 2017 in Mol, Belgium


When: 11th May 2017 -  13:30 – 17:00

Where: Lakehouse VITO/SCK, Boeretang 201, 2400 MOL, Belgium


ButaNexT aims to overcome the technical and economic constraints to the use of biobutanol as an advanced biofuel. Developing new ways to improve butanol productivity is a key part of the equation, and the ButaNexT partners have made significant progress in the areas of strain performance, continuous fermentation and in situ product recovery. This workshop will place the product intensification approaches investigated in ButaNexT within the broader context of advanced product recovery in biocatalysis, chemistry and pharma.


WHY PARTICIPATE? The workshop will be the opportunity to learn about innovative approaches to process intensification and engage with the experts behind the research. Four specific topics will be discussed:

- Process intensification in biocatalytic processes 

- Case study on in situ product recovery in butanol fermentation

- Process intensification by hybrid separation processes 

- Process intensification in chemistry and pharma.


AGENDA. You may download the full agenda directly on this page, using the link below. 


WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Industrial professionals with a technical or scientific background and graduates in science or engineering looking for more insights into process intensification and advanced product recovery.


HOW TO REGISTER? Attendance to the ButaNexT workshop is free of charge, but requires registration through this link.


PLEASE NOTE. The ButaNexT workshop is organised as part of a larger 2 day course on Membrane Technology. Should you be interested in signing up for the entire course (subject to a fee), please download the flyer
