Biomass Mobilisation innovation and strategy course

We invite you to join us in the Biomass Mobilisation Innovation and Strategy Course (#BioMob).

15 April – 18 May – 10 June – 29 June 2021

Scaling up sustainable bio-feedstock supply chains is a big challenge for many companies and organisations in the transition to the circular, bioeconomy. This is touching on different parts and dimensions of innovation. It is about identifying bio-feedstock potential that do not harm -or strengthen- biodiversity and contribute to carbon sequestration, logistic challenges, transparency, technical innovations and cooperation.

In the masterclasses you will examine how to identify and develop sustainable bio-feedstock supply chains for biorefinery. 

Content

During three masterclasses you focus on different approaches for biomass mobilisation and dimensions of innovation such as governance, logistics, commodities, policies, revenue models. 

Masterclass 1

Did you know that 4,6 EJ of biomass could be made available by using abandoned lands throughout Europe? That would mean feedstocks for biofuels that could cover 1/3 of current energy use in transport in Europe.

Masterclass 2

What is the potential of acquatic biomass? Did you know that only 10% of Dutch North Sea is needed to produce 350 PJ of Macroalgae. And what acquatic crops coud be integrated in wetlands, salt marches? 

Masterclass 3

Looking at wastes and residues: what unused waste streams could be identified in agriculture or in expanding timberlands and in our agri-food processing industries? How could currents residues be valorised more optimally? 

The fourth masterclass will be co-produced together with participants. 

More information

For whom?

The biomass mobilisation innovation course is designed for professionals and academics (university/university of applied sciences) that are open to explore new approaches. The course is meant to create a network of front runners in sustainable bio-feedstock mobilisation. You have the opportunity to exchange your views and experiences with a group of fellow professionals.

Dates and commitments

Dates:                       15 April – 18 May – 10 June – 29 June 2021

Times:                      14:00 – 16:00

Commitment:       the innovation course will be free of charge. We ask for committed participation, an open mind for explorations and willingness to build collective intelligence.
