Workshop on Industrial Biology and Bioenergy in the Developing World

This workshop on Tuesday 21 March from 9 am is to disseminate outputs from three BBSRC/GCRF funded projects on industrial biology and bioenergy in the developing world.

The three projects are as follows click here for full details and to book your place to attend:
A Scalable Bio-Based Solution to Eliminate Cyanotoxins in Drinking Water (BB/S-11579/1) The Robert Gordon University (PI Professor Christine Edwards)
Enhancing Essential Oil Feedstocks and High-Value Products From Mentha Species for Local Ugandan Economies (BB/S011501/1) Cardiff University (PI Dr Simon Scofield)
BEFWAM: Bioenergy, Fertiliser and Clean Water from Invasive Aquatic Macrophytes, (BB/S011439/1) University of Leeds (PI Dr Andrew Ross)

This event will provide an opportunity to report on the outputs and impacts from these GCRF funded projects and report on associated ongoing International projects. Presentations from UK and international researchers and investigators will present the key outputs and challenges of the projects. A poster session will allow delegates to discuss outputs directly with researchers involved in the projects during which a light lunch will be served.

Alongside the workshop, there is an opportunity to join the premier screening of the documentary ‘Green Fire: Ugandan Energy Stories’ – a documentary film produced as a BEFWAM output. There will also be an opportunity to visit the glasshouse at Kew which contains the species of water hyacinth discussed in the film. A separate ticket is required to attend this session (Click here for more info)
