Or happy winter, if you are in the Southern Hemisphere. Thank you very much for your commitment.

Most of the Bio4Energy people are having a break until September, but not all.

August start for popular course on biorefinery pilots

Late August, Bio4Energy will be kicking off the third edition of its popular course for PhD and postdoctoral researchers: Biorefinery Pilot Research. It is one of two generic courses in the Bio4Energy Graduate School on the Innovative Use of Biomass.


What

The idea behind Biorefinery Pilot Research is to give students from the graduate level and up an overview of the pilot and demonstration facilities lining the coast of Sweden to the north and east. Those who take the course for credit will have the opportunity to apply what they learned to their own research. For instance, you may want to design a project where you scale up or scale down the technology you are working on, or to place it in the larger context of biorefinery development using wood or organic waste as a starting material. You will learn about tools for developing an innovation in the bio-based sector.

When

A first block of course starts 27 August 2018 at Piteå, Sweden, and the deadline for registration is 10 August. For more details go to the Biorefinery Pilot Research course page or view the course brochure (attached).

For Whom
  • PhD and postdoctoral researchers interested in biorefinery from wood or organic waste.
  • Industry representatives or members of the bio-based sectors wishing to gain or deepen their knowledge of bio-based innovation and pilot and demonstration facilities in northern Sweden designed for the purpose.
