BioSinn expert workshop

11 May 2020, 10 am–4 pm, Maternushaus, Cologne.

In February 2020 the 1st BioSinn expert workshop took place in Cologne to define a list of products for which biodegradation makes sense as an end-of-life option. In the follow-up event on 11 May 2020, the list of the remaining 25 products will be discussed in detail to assess technical and market potentials, political framework conditions and waste management.

What will happen to the water AFTER its usage from the food industry? Among all industry sectors, food and beverage processing waste streams consume large amount of water. Have you ever thought about the possibility of recovering and reusing this industrial waste water? Do you want to know what are the valuable compounds can be generated from this waste streams? How their recovery made possible?

The BBIJU horizon 2020 project AFTERLIFE is organising a workshop concerning the above topics. The project consortium will discuss the challenges in the food wastewater industry and the project results so far. We are looking forward to know your feedback and further innovative ideas from you.

EvaChem Stakeholder Workshop (in German)

14 May 2020, 10 am–4 pm, Maternushaus, Cologne

What are the most advantageous combinations in terms of substances and processes? When are first- and second-generation biomass or CO2 the most advantageous, for which synthesis pathways and target molecules do fossil raw materials remain beneficial? To answer these questions the EvaChem project deals with the development of a practicable multi-criteria system for the evaluation of chemical production (EvaChem) in order to efficiently identify the most advantageous combinations of raw material (fossil resources, CO2, first- and second-generation biomass), synthesis pathway and target molecule.
