EFIB 2018 | Toulouse, France

16 October 2018 to 18 October 2018
Location: 
Toulouse, France

Influential brands and Industry leaders will meet in Toulouse, France, with a broad range of stakeholders and policy makers to discuss the transformative potential of Industrial Biotechnology to create a smarter and more sustainable future.

EFIB fosters engagement between policy makers, a broad range of stakeholders connected with the existing biobased value chain and seeks to reach out to, and include, new interlocutors. In the last decade, EFIB delegates, exhibitors, sponsors and speakers have been showcasing innovative products and processes that deliver solutions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This year, the Industrial biotech communities’ latest achievements in harnessing the power of innovation to deliver solutions to global grand challenges will be celebrated.

Industrial Biotechnology is significantly out-performing the overall chemicals market at an impressive 20% annual growth rate and has the potential to become the dominant technology of tomorrow’s chemicals industry, representing a huge future opportunity. Delivering on this opportunity will require significant investment, innovation and value chain development and most importantly new collaborations across the sector. 

In order to understand and overcome these challenges and prosper in tomorrow’s bioeconomy, for more than ten years, industry experts throughout the vibrant and innovative biobased community have come together every year at EFIB to discuss the key issues and gain a snapshot of the most significant developments on scale up of commercial biorefineries around the world.
