6 Mar 2018 - 8 Mar 2018 / Strasbourg, France

March 6-7-8, 2018


Biomass is a wonderful resource to be transformed into chemicals, biobased materials, food and feed ingredients or energy. Still, adaptation and optimisation of transformation processes and technologies is a real challenge in order to valorise all biomass fraction in a circular approach. 
In the context of Industry 4.0, Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) provide the basis for innovation in a range of products across all industrial sectors. They underpin the shift to a greener economy, are instrumental in modernizing industrial base, and drive the development of entirely new industries. BIOKET, the BIOeconomy’s Key Enabling Technologies conference aims to contribute to the rise of KETs by promoting emerging KETs applied in the Bioeconomy’s sector.
