CIRCULAR-BIO Annual Conference 2021

2. November 2021,9:15 - 17:30

- Free

The partners of the Circular-Bio Network invite you to the project’s annual conference on 2 November. Participation in this hybrid event is possible both on site at the Lindner Congress Hotel Düsseldorf and online.

During the conference, we want to discuss which material flows are available in the cross-border region along the German-Dutch border, which innovative valorisation concepts are being developed, and which product ideas are being promoted. The circular bioeconomy offers diverse potentials and in the past months we have identified some concrete topic areas with particular relevance for the region.

In sessions on the topics Future Fuels, Healthy Building, Food & Feed Solutions and Utilisation of Residual Material Streams from Horticulture, we want to present exciting approaches and jointly discuss possible solutions for existing issues.

The conference will take place from approx. 9.15 am – 5.30 pm. We are looking forward to your participation at the Lindner Congress Hotel Düsseldorf, Lütticher Str. 130, 40547 Düsseldorf. The event will also be accessible in parallel via video stream.
