Biotechnology 2021: Advancing into a decade of sustainability
February 4, 2021 @ 8:00 am - February 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
The conference will discuss trends and developments for a sustainable future economy, based on biogenic, renewable, and recycled carbon. Based on the foundations built in the past decades, this sustainable economy can now be realised with new technological advancements, supporting regulations, and a change in our way of living. The conference will shed light on the role of biotechnology in this bigger picture.
The CIC2021 will cover markets like textiles (for technical as well as clothing applications), and food (with a focus on functional ingredients), that have a strong impact on our daily life and also the economy as a whole. Furthermore, the production of aromatics from biomass and the utilisation of carbon-rich gases (e.g. CO2 or biogas) will be discussed. Also, the final of the Global Biobased Businessplan Competition (G-BiB), will take place on the second day of the conference, showcasing the most promising concepts for innovative bio-renewable chemicals, materials or fuel products.
