Manufacturing using sustainable chemistry: Microwave Technology

16 February, York

Microwave-enhanced chemistry and the alternative uses of microwave heating have been growing in recent years.  Microwave processes are commercially proven and energy-efficient in areas such as waste treatment, and are known to promote rapid chemical reactions but their application to biomass conversion is relatively  Microwave process can be tuned to produce solid and liquid fuels, sugars and chemicals products.

This meeting coincides with the opening of the first phase of the Biorenewables Development Centre (BDC) on the York Science Park, the biorefinery R+D facility will be unique to the UK and will showcase state-of-the-art microwave-biomass processors and other clean chemical and white biotechnology with open-access to academic and industrial collaborators. The facility aims to bridge the current “proof of principle” and scale-up gap which exists for novel technologies by allowing these technologies to be demonstrated and integrated without capital risk from the end user. events@cia.org.uk
