1st ICIS Bioresources Summit take aways

I like getting away to conferences, its good to have your pre-occupations tested in by friendly questioning in a supportive atmosphere. This (OK so I work for ICIS) was a good conference,and its local focus helped.
I like the North East Process Industry Consortium’s plan to try and build a 1m tonne/year biofuels and biochemcials plant by 2020, mentioned in my earlier post. It is a vision; it probably won’t happen in quite the way that Stan and Mark outline, and they dont really expect it to come together in the way they propose. But the point is it is something substantial to aim for, and that kind of beacon project could light the way for others in the UK and across Europe.

    Dear Simon
    Good to talk with you at lunch today at the ICIS conference and I enjoyed your presentation. Please give me a call if you want to talk/learn about torrefaction, and its partner technologies (pyrolysis and pelletisation).

    Hi Geraint,
    It was a good lunch conversation. I’ll try to get in touch about torrefraction before Christmas.
