The congress celebrates the conclusion of the two-year Bio-Economy program Non-Food Biomass in the Ems-Dollart Region (EDR), which aimed to promote the regional cross-border biobased economy and thereby further development of the institutions and SMEs that are active in this chain. Also, there will be a kick-off for a new two-year cooperation program focusing on Green Chemistry.
More than 200 participants from all over the world come to discuss Bio-Economy, Green Chemistry and sustainable land use. Strategies and solutions are presented for efficient material and energy use of biomass and residues in the sense of a circular economy; from scientific findings to practical examples from SMEs. The packed program contains various parallel sessions and extensive networking opportunities.
The congress is organized by the 3N Kompetenzzentrum Niedersachsen Netzwerk Nachwachsende Rohstoffe und Bioökonomie e.V. in cooperation with Ems-Dollart Region (EDR) and the Northern Development Company NV NOM. It is supported by funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and co-financed by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the provinces of Drenthe, Flevoland, Fryslân, Gelderland, Groningen, North Brabant, Overijssel, and the Niedersachsisches Ministerium für Bundes- und Europaangelegenheiten und Regional Entwicklung.
