Admission is free of charge and accessible for everybody who wants to attend no matter if they take part in EFIB 2021 or not. Please note that a registration in advance is obligatory.

With respect to circular economy and the use of renewable feedstocks, the European project CARBAFIN has developed a radically new value chain for the utilization of sucrose from sugar beet biomass. Functional glycosides (eg for prebiotics or cosmetics) or platform chemicals (eg for bioplastics, biofuels or biopolymers) are important product examples and open new and economically relevant perspectives for the European sugar industry to several industrial sectors. Biocatalytic production processes were elevated to an industrial level using an integrated process design approach accompanied by environmental and economic evaluation.

In this satellite stakeholder workshop we would like to discuss the replication potential of this glycosylation technology and explore the opportunities thereof in different industries: Representatives from the cosmetic, food, feed, pharma or (bulk) chemical industry as well as scientists are welcome to identify new solutions for a bio-based re-industrialization in Europe and to discuss new ways of valorization.

Learn about CARBAFIN’s outcomes and results, find new collaboration partners and take part in our joint expert’s discussion in world café format to exchange perspectives and requirements for production routes in terms of a circular economy.
