2nd Sustainable Bioenergy and Processes Conference

Theme: Powering Sustainable Economies

The organising committee of the 2nd Sustainable Bioenergy and Processes conference, SBP2022 invites you to partake in the Sustainable Bioenergy and Processes conference scheduled to take place in Cape Town, South Africa from the 12th – 14th December 2022. Bioeconomy has continued to be critical in the need to meet sustainable goals. The harnessing of various biomass as well as processing to valuable products remains a pillar in the success of bioeconomies. While sustainability is highly desired, the challenges to actualizing the idea cannot be ignored. The conference aims to discuss progress, challenges and potential solutions towards utilisation of biomass for sustainability.
