World Bio Markets, the global integrated Biofuels and bio-based chemicals event is to launch a new extended segment on biorefinery plant design and optimisation for the first time in 2014. Set to take place at the RAI in Amsterdam for the ninth consecutive year, World Bio Markets is a well-established, integrated discussion and networking forum for the global bio-based fuels and chemicals industries.
New to World Bio Markets 2014, the new Biorefinery Segment will feature discussions led by those with steel in the ground and will focus on how to generate overall process profitability. Beta Renewables will evaluate the lessons learnt since the opening of their Crescentino ethanol plant, whilst Abengoa will focus on strategies for process optimisation and Gevo will review the paths to increased process efficiency.
“We are delighted to be extending our programme to cover the debate on biorefineries,” said Dr Charlotte Linfoot, Global Bio Markets Series Director. “This two-day conference dedicated to biofuels and bio-based chemical plant design and processing arrives at a time when commercialisation is the word on everyone’s lips. It is a welcome addition to the excellent mix of topics as the event continues to grow.”
