As part of the Swedish Prime Minister`s Innovation Partnership Programme, Circular and biobased economy, we would like to invite you to the conference BIOBASE in Piteå, Sweden, on 22nd – 23rd November. Follow us on a journey towards a circular and biobased society and how we can mitigate climate change to make Europe prosperous.

Please join the Swedish Minister of Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg and state secretary Elisabeth Backteman, through the forest based value chain from a sustainable forestry to a variety of biobased products.

A challenge facing large parts of the world today is how we deal with and respond to important societal challenges, such as the transition to a fossil-free economy, where biobased materials and products, as well as various forms of bioenergy are key components.

Northern Sweden is one of the regions in Europe with the highest proportion of forests land per area, with one of the world’s strictest regulations for sustainable forestry, and have several universities with forest related research. Therefore the region has unique prerequisites for both producing green bioenergy and at the same time pursuing excellence in accelerating the development of second generation advanced biofuels, with significant added value across Europe.

In Piteå you will get a unique opportunity to experience an ongoing industry and innovation for sustainable growth, via exclusive site visits day 1 and a conference day 2:

  • Sustainable forestry
  • Second generation advanced biofuel production
  • A state of the art factory for industrialized construction of wood based apartment buildings
  • Advanced research and innovation for future biobased materials and products

We will also invite you to world class acoustics through Scandinavia’s largest organ with 9000 pipes in the Piteå concert hall, Studio Acusticum, a concert hall entirely built of Wood.

Program: Biobase_program_dag 1-2 and Biobase_program_dag 2
