Webinars on solutions for green transition

A series of European webinars will explain the potential of circular bioeconomy and new technologies for transforming biomasses into high value products

Research with a direct focus on the transition from a based economy to a circular and biobased economy has been carried out at Aarhus University for almost a decade.

The research has proved significant potentials for reducing the environmental and climatic impact from agriculture. Furthermore, research has shown how fossil raw materials and energy can be substituted with renewable plant- and marine-based biomasses.

In a series of webinars, CBIO (Aarhus University Centre for Circular Bioeconomy) will put light on the potential of circular bioeconomy and the innovative technologies that CBIO and collaborative partners have developed in order to enable the green transition. 

The first webinar “Green Biorefinery- a Green Deal for agriculture” will take place on 17 November 2020 and focus on the potentials for both the European community and for SMEs and larger companies. Read more.

The second seminar takes place on 3 December 2020 and will focus on technologies for producing protein from green biomasses. Read more.

About CBIO - Centre for Circular Bioeconomy, Aarhus University

Centre for Circular Bioeconomy, CBIO, was established in May 2017 by the former faculty of Science and Technology, Aarhus University. CBIO has extensive test sites on land and at sea, as well as unique research facilities, including a biorefinery inaugurated in 2019.

CBIO activities are divided into seven main areas, covering the entire production chain ranging from cultivating and procuring biomasses, logistics, management, refining, product development and tests, recirculation, impact on nature and environment as well as research in relation to society and economy.

A close collaboration with both Danish and international companies and organizations in the bio-based economy is a key element in CBIO. This supports innovation and entrepreneurship in agriculture, the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the plastics industry and other sectors with an interest in the new bioeconomic potential.
