NEPIC INTERNATIONAL BIORESOURCES CONFERENCE

DISCOVER THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN RENEWABLES & BIORESOURCES AT THE NEPIC INTERNATIONAL BIORESOURCES CONFERENCE – SEPTEMBER 22ND RADISSON BLU HOTEL, DURHAM CITY, UK.

The NEPIC International Bioresources Conference to be held on 22 September 2016 at the Radisson Blu, Durham City, United Kingdom will bring together a large gathering of senior industrialists, business leaders, scientists, academics and  agriculturalists from across global markets to hear some of the latest developments in renewable energy and bioresources activity. The North East of England is once again proud to be hosting this international event, complimented by delegates and speakers from global markets and sectors representing a first class opportunity to share expertise and network with likeminded companies and individuals. A key conference objective will be to get organisations and individuals talking to each other, sharing knowledge, tackling complex issues and topics and seeking opportunities for collaboration, business growth and investment.

Speakers will cover topics across areas such as Low carbon initiatives/technologies; Renewables/Industrial Symbiosis; CO2 utilisation/Hydrogen economy; Biomass/renewables to chemicals.

An updated and final agenda will be published in due course.  Confirmed speakers and associated topics include:

Lanzatech (New Zealand) – Lanzatech’s novel gas-to-liquid technology has opened up new sources for making low-carbon chemicals and fuels and a bioprocessing platform offers an economically robust route to carbon capture and re-use.
