      Catbior 2017, 4th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries

      Lyon, France

      Palais Hirsch 18 quai Claude Bernard Lyon, France

      Catbior 2017  will address the main issues in the dynamic field of catalysis for biorefineries, in fundamental and applied catalysis researches for biomass transformation. Special emphasis will be placed on the utilization of lignocellulosic or algal biomass and non-edible vegetable oils, which do not compete with food. It will be focused on the use of sustainable catalytic methodologies, heterogeneous and homogeneous, including hybrid or dual catalysis.

      The topics of interest include:
      1) Catalytic routes for direct polysaccharides, lignin, and raw biomass transformation.
      2) Catalytic transformation of lignocellulosic platform chemicals.
      3) Catalytic transformation of vegetable oils, fats, algae and oleo-derived chemicals.
      4) Thermochemical transformations of biomass into bio-oils and related catalytic upgrading technologies for bio-oils.
      5) Modeling aspects of the processes and mechanistic studies.
      6) Development of analytic tools, in situ characterization techniques.

      Preliminary Program:
      The program of the "4th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries” (Catbior 2017) will include 4 plenary lectures, 6 keynotes lectures in addition to orals/posters communications.
      Moreover, three Industrial symposia are scheduled with invited speakers, on the following topics:
      1- Starch, sugar, wood industries: past and future
      2- Biomass to chemicals
      3- Biomass to biofuels
