CatBior 2017

From 12/11/2017 to 12/15/2017

Université Lumière Lyon 2 - 4Bis Rue de l'Université, 69007 Lyon


The organizing committee cordially invites you to attend the 4th International Congress on Catalysis for Biorefineries, Catbior 2017, to be held in Lyon (France) from 11 to 15 December 2017. The 1st Catbior originated in 2011 in Málaga (Spain). Since then, the congress alternates worldwide in odd years: the 2nd congress was held in Dalian (China) in 2013, the 3rd one took place in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in 2015. This fourth edition 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.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Lyon for this international event and to sharing with you the latest scientific progresses in the area of catalysis for biorefineries.
