Welcome to ELB 2018 meeting
The "Exploring lignocellulosic biomass: challenges and opportunity for bioeconomy" (ELB 2018) meeting chaired by FARE lab and organised by several academic labs in Reims (France) was held in June 26-29, 2018 in the Centre des Congrès in Reims.
ELB 2018 congress was dedicated to the different uses of lignocellulosic resource in both agroecosystems and biotechnology. ELB 2018 congress further aimed at providing an overview of the challenges of i) lignocellulose biotransformation in soils, in relation to their fertility and to climate stabilization, ii) lignocellulose conversion by bio-physico-chemical processes to produce biobased chemicals, materials and fuels. The socio-economic point of view was also discussed in the context of the emerging bioeconomy.
More than 130 scientific attendees from academic labs and industries participated to the meeting, together with renowned international experts who presented their work and foresight.
