EFIB Congress 2018
Toulouse, France 16/10/2018
The European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology & the Bioeconomy (EFIB) 2018 will be taking place on the 16 - 18th October 2018 in Toulouse, France.

Industrial Biotechnology is currently worth €23 billion representing 6% in sales of the overall worldwide chemicals market but is far out-performing the overall chemicals market. However, this opportunity faces many challenges and in order to understand and overcome these challenges in the industrial biotechnology market, industry experts throughout the vibrant and innovative biobased community come together to one central location every year to discuss the key issues and gain a snapshot of the most significant developments on scale up of commercial biorefineries around the world.

Delegates are provided with an update on the status and outlook of biobased industries. EFIB is proud to foster engagement between policy makers, a broad range of stakeholders connected with the existing biobased value chain and seeks to reach out to, and include, new interlocutors.
