3rd International BioSC Symposium

Towards an Integrated Bioeconomy

12th-13th November 2018 | Gustav-Stresemann-Institut | Bonn, Germany

Meeting the Grand Societal Challenges and successfully implementing a sustainable bioeconomy requires the contribution of various stakeholders and research disciplines. Basic, applied and industry-oriented research including the natural, agricultural, engineering and economic sciences have to be bundled into a systemic integrative approach. At the 3rd International BioSC Symposium, experts from academia and industry discuss recent results and new developments for a sustainable bioeconomy from different points of view.

  • Session II: Innovations for Plant Production and Resource Management
    Interdisciplinary, sustainable and visionary concepts, that allow for resource-preserving and environmental-friendly enhancement of plant performance, adaptation of quality to the respective utilization pathway and minimization of yield and post-harvest losses.

  • Session III: Green Value Chains ‐ Processes and Products from Biomass
    New value chain concepts, promising products and solutions for the processing of biogenic raw materials, modular (bio-) transformations, downstream processing and integrated biorefinery concepts for the holistic and sustainable utilization of biomass.
