IFEU participated at the 2nd International Bioeconomy Congress in Stuttgart
The 2nd International Bioeconomy Congress in Stuttgart, held on 12–13 September 2017, was an interdisciplinary expert and stakeholder meeting dedicated to the systemic approaches of Bioeconomy, organized by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg, the University of Hohenheim as well as BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH. The conference aimed at discussing innovative products, processes and regional concepts that use biomass instead of fossil resources and to share first results from the Bioeconomy Research Program Baden-Württemberg which was implemented in 2014.
150 scientific contributions were chosen to be presented either as an oral or poster presentation. SEEMLA partner IFEU participated in the event with a poster presentation entitled “High hopes for marginal land? A life cycle assessment of bioenergy from lignocellulosic crops” .
During both days, the approximately 350 participants of the congress dealt with eight topics:
– Sustainable biomass supply
– Food and feed – New sources, products, technology and application
– Value chains for new materials, chemicals and fuels
– Substrates, technologies and products in the biogas value chain
– Collaboration networks for Bioeconomy value chains
– Bioeconomy and the environment
– Concepts for measuring and modelling the sustainability of bio-based materials
– Societal issues of Bioeconomy
