The European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy 2016

Efib 2016

Date: 18-20 October 2016 

Venue: Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC), Exhibition Way, Glasgow G3 8YW

EFIB is the market leading annual event in Europe for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy. Industrial Biotechnology is currently worth €23 billion representing just 6% in sales of the overall worldwide chemicals market. However, it is significantly out-performing the overall chemicals market at an impressive 20% annual growth rate and has the potential to become the dominant technology of tomorrow’s chemicals industry, representing a huge future opportunity.

Hear from and network with over 600 of the most important IB and bioeconomy leaders from throughout the bio based value chain.

In parallel to EFIB 2016, a unique exhibition on 'Bioeconomy in everday life' will take place at the Glasgow Science Centre

The bioeconomy encompasses the production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into food, feed, bio-based products and bioenergy via innovative and efficient technologies provided by Industrial Biotechnology. It is already a reality and one that offers great opportunities and solutions to a growing number of major societal, environmental and economic challenges, including climate change mitigation, energy and food security and resource efficiency.

Whether for food, clothing or consumer goods, in the kitchen or in the garage – many everyday products contain components made from renewable raw materials or are produced using bio-based procedures. The bioeconomy has thus made its way into everyone’s lives, even though we are not usually aware of it.
