INVITATION LUNCH SEMINAR: The transition to a fossil-free society will increase the need for biomass-based solutions and different technologies are being developed for converting biomass to materials and fuels. This lunch seminar will provide an overview of current research into biomass conversion at Chalmers and Aarhus university and will also show how new biomass production can help improve resource use efficiency and reduce existing environmental impacts in the agriculture sector.
