About the Event

The Global Market for Biorefinery Products is expected to clinch $714.6 Billion by 2021 from $466.6 Billion in 2016 at whopping CAGR of 8.9%. Whereas, The global market for wood pellets demand in the industrial sector reached about 13.8 million tonnes in 2016. Every year, only 3% of the 170 million tonnes of biomass produced by photosynthesis is being utilized which can provide a number of opportunities to biorefinery and biochemical to process his biomass. The prime factors driving the Biorefinery & Bio-Based Chemical Industries include growing awareness of environmental issues linking with fossil fuel consumption and inflating global energy demand, consumers’ acceptance for biorefinery products and growing need for energy independence. With the factors driving growth of this market, there are various challenges as well which include degree of complexity with the utilization of multiple feedstock depending on the application requirement, regulated biomass availability and economic & technological risks.

In view of the above developments, Trade Essential is organising Biorefinery & Bio-Based Chemical Conference, highlighting the major innovations and contemporary approaches in Biorefinery & Bio-Based Chemical industries. The conference will cover new research results, European Bioeconomy, waste management, Outlook on Pyrolytic Lignin, Potential of Microalgae, Green Biorefinery Strategies, Overview on Biomates, Carbon Cycle management, Application of Blockchain Biofuel, Research on Bio-Based Epoxy Resin, Mass cultivation of feedstock, and much more.
