Events in 2016

IBTI and BBSRC NIBB meeting  - Value Chain of Bioresource Feedstocks, Portland Hotel, Manchester, 30 June - 1 July 2016

This is a meeting jointly organised by BBSRC IBTI (Integrated Biorefining Research and Technology) Club and 4 NIBB (ADNet, FoodWasteNet, LBNet, Plants2Products).

The meeting will explore topics underpinning the value chain of waste feedstocks, particularly aiming to assess the value chain from all perspectives: from the feedstock to the end-product end of the value chain. It will also cover novel technologies for the future and discuss challenges with respect to policy and regulation in waste stock utilisation. Draft programme is available.

This event will provide an excellent opportunity to identify and highlight the major roadblocks in using waste and bioresource feedstocks and allow for communities to combine their thoughts and efforts in order to tackle these issues.

Academics (including non-IBTI members) are invited to present posters highlighting their current work relevant to the research aims of the Club.

Bursary funds are available to individuals who can benefit from interaction with the IBTI community and who also have a contribution to make.  We would in particular like to invite academics who have engaged or attempted to engage with the community.  Recipients will present a poster of relevant research and present a 2 minute flash presentation to introduce themselves and their interests. The bursaries cover cost of attending the event (excluding travel).
