Winter School "Biomass to Sustainable Bio-products"

Start: 29.03.2023 00:00

Estonian University of Life Sciences

We are pleased to invite you to the Winter School " Biomass to Sustainable Bio-products " in Tartu, Estonia from 29.03 - 31.03.2023 organized by the ERA Chair in VALORTECH in the Institute of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences of the Estonian University of Life Sciences. 

The course “Biomass to Sustainable Bio-products’’ offered in the winter school covers comprehensively various aspects related to the conversion of agri-food industrial waste and by-products into valuable products through sustainable means. This course will give an outline about biomass valorization to obtain sustainable bio-products. In specific, the possibility to convert biomass into valuable and desired products brings in the double benefit of stabilising and treating wastes (biomass), thus minimising their effect on the environment, while instantaneously valorising them into value added products. The course covers topics such as sourcing biomass, valorization technologies, various conversion methods, green deal and sustainable food production. As a case study, valorization of dairy industry waste and by-products, and biogas production are covered. Through informative lectures, creative discussions, group activities and hands-on lab work, students will gain a deep understanding of the science and technology behind converting biomass into sustainable bio-products. Upon completion of the course, students will have a strong foundation in the field and be well- prepared for a career in the bio-product industry.
