International Conference: Bioresource Technology for Bioenergy, Bioproducts & Environmental Sustainability

Bioresource Technology for Bioenergy, Bioproducts & Environmental Sustainability

14–17 May 2023 Lake Garda, Italy

4th International Conference for Bioresource Technology for Bioenergy, Bioproducts & Environmental Sustainability

4th International Conference for Bioresource Technology for Bioenergy, Bioproducts & Environmental Sustainability

BIORESTEC will aim to bring together researchers in academia and industry, as well as policymakers, to discuss the latest trends in biotechnology, bioenergy, and biobased products.

The BIORESTEC organizing committee are delighted to announce that the fourth meeting will be held in-person in Lake Garda, Italy, 14–17 May 2023.The health & safety of Elsevier’s conference delegation is a top priority and so we continue to monitor the changing Covid-19 situation closely. Rest assured that should we not be able to meet in person, we have the ability to host this conference online, so please submit your abstract and register in confidence.

BIORESTEC will aim to bring together researchers in academia and industry, as well as policymakers, to discuss the latest trends in biotechnology, bioenergy, and biobased products.

The programme will be curated by a committee of world class academic leaders in their respective fields with key topic areas including:BIORESTEC will consider exploration and exploitation of bioresource technologies for developing biomass-based processes and products and cover following topics specifically.

Supporting publications

Bioresource Technology(opens in new tab/window) publishes original articles, review articles, case studies and short communications on the fundamentals, applications and management of bioresource technology.

The journal's aim is to advance and disseminate knowledge in all the related areas of biomass, biological waste treatment, bioenergy, biotransformations and bioresource systems analysis, and technologies associated with conversion or production.

Bioresource Technology Reports(opens in new tab/window) is an online-only rapid-publication journal focused on the fundamentals, applications and management of bioresource technology. Like its sister journal, Bioresource Technology, Bioresource Technology Reports' mission is to advance and disseminate knowledge in all the related areas of bioenergy, biotransformations and bioresource systems analysis, and technologies associated with conversion or production. Presented papers may be invited for a special issue in Bioresource Technology(opens in new tab/window) and/or Bioresource Technology Reports(opens in new tab/window).

Proceedings will not be published in the journals.
