5th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries 2019

CatBior V, 2019

The organizing committee cordially invites you to attend the 5th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries, CatBior V, 2019, to be held in Turku  (Finland) from Monday, September 23 - Friday, September 27  2019. The 1st Catbior originated in 2011 in Malaga (Spain).

The conference covers all aspects of application of catalysis on biorefineries, particularly
•    Fundamental and applied catalysis in biorefinery
•    Molecular insights in processing of biomass
•    Utilization of lignocellulosic, algal biomass, vegetable oils and other biomass
•    Industrial demonstrations
•    Catalysis in its variety – homogeneous, enzymatic and heterogeneous catalysis

A Special Issue related to CatBior V will be published in Catalysis Today (Elsevier).
