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).
