The aim of the BTechPro! conferences is to promote the professional development of early career researchers and to establish contacts between research groups working on biomass processing challenges. The conference is not only a platform for the participants to present their scientific work, give and get feedback from peers, listen to interesting plenary lectures, and submit a full-length article, but also a possibility to actively take part in workshops and participate in match-making activities.

All research related to different aspects of valorisation and characterisation of biomass are welcome, but the main topics of the conference are:

  • Biomass feedstock pre-treatment
  • Biomass processing and extraction
  • Wood- and other biomass-based materials
  • Bioengineering technologies
  • Synthesis of bio-based chemicals and polymers
  • Characterisation of biorefinery products
  • Bioeconomy and environmental aspects
