The Waste2Fuels project has been also presented at:

13th International Symposium on the Genetics of Industrial Microorganisms, October 16-20, 2016, Wuhan, China.

International Conference on Metabolic Science (ICMS-2016). The conference provided a platform for world’s leading scientists, young scholars, graduates and entrepreneurs to network, exchanging update progress for solutions to address common challenges. In this occasion, WEIZMANN had a keynote “Designer cellulosomes: A gold mine for synthetic nanobiotechnology” aimed at highlighting the rational bioengineering of cellulase and cellulosomal components for the production of tailor-made multi-functional enzymes and “designer cellulosomes” for improved cellulose degradation.

Biomolecules and Nanostructures 6, May 10-14, 2017, Podlesice, Poland

The closing workshop of the Austrian national project KASAV, May 22, Wien. TUWIEN took part in the workshop with a presentation from Michael Harasek: “Downstream processing in fermentation processes using the example of KASAV process”. The event was focused on discussing the development of a cascaded three-stage process in order to generate liquid and gaseous biofuels from municipal organic waste. The core element of this process is a two-stage ABE process with subsequent biogas stage. Purified gas from hydrolysis will be utilized in the ABE as well as the biogas stage (internal biogas upgrading). Around 25 participants from local industry (waste management companies, biogas plant operators) and academia attended this workshop and received substantial insight to actually important research topics.

The First Workshop on Marine Offshore Biorefinery, May 24, 2017, in Israel

Biofuels and sustainability: Decarbonising transport and fuelling food security, 7 June, Brussels. The topic talked about how renewable energy, in particular biofuels can make sure the decarbonisation of the transport sector and, at the same time to not hamper the production of food.
