The European project CARBAFIN will be the focus of a free EFIB2021 satellite stakeholder workshop on 5 October.

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.

During the workshop, the replication potential of this glycosylation technology and its opportunities in different industries will be discussed. 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.

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