It is our great honor to invite you to the 8th of the International Conference on Biorefinery and Biomanufacturing (ICB 2023), that will be held between 23-27th of July 2023 in Athens, Greece

The conference is jointly organized by Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT), China, the University of Western Macedonia (UOWM), Greece and University of Patras (UP), Greece.

Over the years, ICB has become a traditional meeting place for international researchers, investors, and decision makers to meet and exchange ideas over the latest research and development in the field, to establish new connections and reinforce existing collaborations.

We expect that the conference will attract over 300 participants with diverse interests in the development of Biorefineries. We warmly encourage you to submit an abstract and participate in the ICB 2023. The call for abstracts is open until the 15th of June 2023. We also strongly encourage the participation of students, i.e., the future generation of scientists and researchers. The scientific committee, composed of recognized experts from the global biorefinery and biomanufacturing community, is committed to select the best papers and propose a high scientific level conference programme.

We would be excited if you join us in Athens at ICB 2023 so that we can together innovate the conversion of biomass/C1 into value-added products such as biofuels, biochemicals, bioenergy/biopower, and other biomaterials, while at the same time enhancing the quality of life on Earth.

Yours sincerely,
