Symposium Scope

As the only renewable organic carbon resource, biomass has always been one of the most important resources for human. R&D on biomass and biorefinery is now one of the hotspots currently. On the other side, current urban and rural waste treatment is one of the biggest challenges we are facing. The Symposium is designed to provide a forum with the latest information on research, demonstration, innovation and industrialization within the scope of biomass, biorefinery and waste management, through which officials, professionals and the relative investors can exchange ideas and work together for a sustainable and green future. With a commitment to excellence in innovation and a dedication to the enhancement of collaboration, the Symposium will provide superb program, talks, ideas and attract world leaders in relevant fields, aiming to true world impacts on innovation and industrialization of biomass and waste technologies. With the contribution of all the experts and representatives, we believe that the Symposium will obtain fruitful achievements and level up the research and application of biomass utilization, biorefinery and waste management technology.
