Save the date for the next NWBC!

Nordic Wood Biorefinery Conference (NWBC) is an international event where research and industry meet to discuss recent wood-based biorefinery developments.

The 9th NWBC, 24-26 March 2020, will present the latest ideas and developments in biorefinery separation and conversion processes as well as new bio-based products from the wood biorefinery: energy, chemicals and materials.

The event gathers expert speakers from the chemical, energy, pulp and paper industry as well as recognized representatives from the global research community.

NWBC  is a cooperation between RISE in Sweden  and VTT in Finland. The 8th NWBC gathered over 200 participants in Helsinki 23-25 October 2018. Besides presentations and discussions on plenty of aspects on wood biorefining, the participants got the opportunity to visit St1´s bioethanol plant and VTT´s pilot center. The conference program reflected the growing interest in valorising lignin from both pulp mills and ethanol plants. Another hot topic was the resource efficiency of the kraft process; will future biorefineries process wood with ionic liquids or deep eutectic solvents instead?
