++ Almost final programme online ++ Already 110 participants from 20 countries registered ++ More than 500 leading international experts and 40 exhibitors are expected to attend the conference ++

New biotechnological and chemical processes make it possible for biorefineries to produce proteins, flavours, fibres for textiles, chemicals and plastics sustainably and efficiently from various biomass. Biorefineries and biotechnology are the future for the production of these products. At “Revolution in Food and Biomass Production (REFAB)”, October 1 and 2 in Cologne (Germany) existing advances of prominent companies of this field will be presented.

Borregaard (NO) and Lenzing (AT) are technology leaders for biorefineries based on wood for producing various food products and textile fibres.

Additionally, high-tech technologies are applied in Godavari Biorefineries in India using waste streams from sugar and sugar cane. Phytowelt GreenTechnologies (DE) will present how the production of flavours with biotechnological methods has succeeded.
