IBEST International Bioenergy and Biorefinery Forum on 13 March
You are warmly invited to attend the University of Surrey and IBEST International Bioenergy and Biorefinery Forum on 13 March, chaired by Professor Sai Gu, Head of Chemical and Process Engineering. We are holding an industrial exhibition free of charge on the day. In addition, there are a limited number of travel and subsistence grants available for eminent speakers. This is a unique opportunity to exhibit your organisation’s portfolio not only to UK customers, but also to the international market.
Since its creation two years ago supported by the Newton funding scheme and UK Research Councils, the Institution of Biorefinery Engineers, Scientists and Technologists (IBEST), has grown internationally to include over 50+ organisations as members. Many of these are looking to seriously invest in bioenergy and biorefinery businesses. Oil palm supply chain is a good example. Our organisation bases include South-East Asia, South America and African countries.
UK Research Councils are actively supporting research and development for poverty alleviation in developing countries. Bioenergy and alternative systems such as biorefineries have an important role to play in poverty alleviation, job creations and security of resources in these countries. Our DAC partner organisations are also very keen to take UK’s cutting edge technology advantages. Hence, here’s an opportunity to exhibit what skills and technologies your organisation can offer in the area. We strongly encourage you to join this free event and participate in the outreach activities to go truly global.
As mentioned, there are a limited number of travel & subsistent supports available for eminent speakers. If you would like to speak at the event, please let’s know by the end of next week, with your brief CV, organisation profile and a summary of your speech. Please also consider bringing in desk top demonstration equipment for better engagement with your potential customers.
The University of Surrey and IBEST communities are looking forward to welcoming you at their International Bioenergy and Biorefinery Forum on 13 March.
