Nova-Institute is organizing the 12th International Conference on Bio-based Materials at the Maternushaus in Cologne (Germany) this coming May, on the 15th and 16th, which will bring together major international players from industry.
Chimie Balard Cirimat Carnot Institute is a proud partner of this event.
Bio-based building blocks & polymers for a bioeconomy
The nova-Institute GmbH is a private and independent research institute, founded in 1994. It offers research and consulting with a focus on bio-based and CO2-based economies covering the following aspects:
• food and feedstocks;
• techno-economic evaluation & markets;
• B2B communication;
Every year, nova organises several important conferences on these topics, including the International Conference on Bio-based Materials.
During the two days of the conference, attendees will hear from company and institutional experts on:
• Vision & Policy
• Bio-based Building Blocks & Polymers
• Bio-based Fine Chemicals
• Biodegradable Solutions
A highlight of the program is the “Bio-based Material of the Year” Innovation Award, sponsored by Infraserv Knapsack. Six companies have been nominated by an expert jury and the winner will be announced at the meeting.
Chimie Balard Cirimat Carnot Institute a conference partner
Our Institute will be represented by Dr Suming Li, a researcher in the European Institute of Membranes. His research activities include the synthesis, study of the structure-property relationship, degradation mechanisms, and biomedical and pharmaceutical applications of degradable and bioresorbable polymers. In recent years he is particularly interested in the chemical modification of biopolymers such as chitosan and cellulose, and in the self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers.
Dr Li looks forward to discussing your research needs at the conference.
