EABA Algae Based Biofuels Workshop

Martin's Brussels Hotel, Brussels, Belgium

The European Algae Biomass Association (EABA) aims at promoting a strong link between science, technology and business in the algae biomass sector. Algae based biofuels represent an emerging field with a large potential, but where innovation is still necessary to achieve full deployment and economies of scale. Integration among biorefining and bioenergy aspects is key for the development of the algae biofuel route. It is therefore very relevant to bring together the main actors and stakeholders for knowledge exchange and collaboration.

The Workshop is designed in a compact format, with a Panel-based structure.  Each Panel has a specific topic and a duration of 1 hour, with 20 minutes for the presentation of the topic and 40 minutes for discussion and conclusions. Each Panel has an invited chair, and the participants in the panel will be volunteers from the participant group. There will be sufficient time from the event where key conclusions from each Panel will be presented by a rapporteur.
