Summer School ZELCOR "Zero waste biorefineries: technical advances and sustainability assessment"

The 1st Summer School on waste biorefineries in the context of bioeconomy, with a focus on valorization of recalcitrant side streams. A panel of specialists in the biorefinery field will provide an up-to-date state-of-the-art based on the latest advances in terms of scientific knowledge, techno-economical developments and assessement methodologies. In co-operation with INRA and NOVA.

A dedicated summer school training on waste biorefineries in the context of bioeconomy, with a focus on valorization of recalcitrant side streams. A panel of twenty academic and industrial international specialists in this biorefinery field will provide an up-to-date state-of-the-art based on the latest advances in terms of scientific knowledge, techno-economical developments and assessement methodologies. Key challenging topics will be addressed, such as biomass availability and mobilization, recalcitrant waste characterization by a set of complementary analytical methods, enzymatic and chemical conversisions of ligning into functional biomolecules, development of new bio-based sustainable value chains.
In parallel with plenary lectures, the participants will have the chace to apply their acquired knowledge through case studies carried out in groups, and .... to go out and visit a Dutch biorefinery factory.
