Welcome to a 2hr webinar with presentations and Q&A 12 June 2024 from 10-12 o’clock about Biomaterials from local non-wood biomass.

In Denmark, we have a big untapped potential to boost agricultural production of agricultural residues, and utilize available non-wood resources for materials in the circular bioeconomy.

Bio materials have a great potential in future construction practices: everyday packaging, building materials, and other high value materials as sustainable alternatives to conventional fossil-based materials. The long lifetime of construction materials opens a window for using it for CO2-storage and create negative emissions in the building and materials sector.

Time: 10-12 o’clock

Participation is for free. Register latest 10 June!
