BIO-QED midterm stakeholder workshop
The midterm stakeholder workshop of the BIO-QED project will take place at the Royal Flemish Academy for Sciences and Arts in Brussels on June 24th, 2015 (14.00 – 17.00). As a satellite workshop to the final conference of the BIO-TIC project, it represents the opportunity to know more about the latest advances made in the biobased productionof the platform molecules itaconic acid and butanediol, through the expertise of specialists, scientists and industrial players behind the technology and new business opportunities in these fields.
The BIO-QED project, which is planned to last for 4 years, was officially launched on January 1st, 2014 with the aim to open new industrial routes for the production of important chemicals from renewable sources rather than traditional petrochemical sources. The project, coordinated by Novamont and financed by the European Union as part of the Seventh Framework Programme, involving 10 partners from 6 European countries (Italy, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Croatia and Spain) fits perfectly with in the European Bioeconomy strategy, which is intended to guide the European economic system towards a broader and more sustainable use of resources, reconciling the requirements of agriculture and food safety with the sustainable use of renewable sources for industrial purposes.
