Green biorefinery refers to processing of green biomass, such as grasses and forage legumes to a wide spectre of products. Products may be used for feed or technical applications. The aim of this seminar is to share knowledge about green biorefinery in the Nordic countries and discuss implementation of new technology with actors in the value chain.

Invited speakers from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. The seminar is conducted in English. 

The official opening of our pilot plant will be on September 11. Please find more information about the opening day on our registration page.
