The 7th International Conference on Biorefinery (ICB2019)

The 7th International Conference on Biorefinery (ICB2019)

We are pleased to announce the upcoming ICB2019 conference to beheld on August 18-21, 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa. It will again offer a scientific and technical conference program that provides an opportunity for industry, research, political and financing stakeholders and experts around the world to gather and share insights into recent R&D activities and new developments in biorefinery technology with focus on development, marketing and commercialization. Biorefinery is to transform biomass and green wastes to valuable products including heat, power, liquid and gaseous fuels, and chemicals. With the conference we hope to provide a platform for international researchers, investors, and decision makers to meet and exchange the latest research and development in the field, to establish new connections and reinforce existed collaborations, and hopefully to inspire more innovative ideas!

ICB2019 will build on the successes of past events and promises to be even more insightful and rewarding. We look forward to meeting you there!
