10:30am – 12:00noon, Tuesday 24 May 2022

An online showcase of opportunities for the development of sustainable biofuels, as part of the decarbonisation of key energy and transportation industries.

Researchers from the Universities of Hull, York and Teesside have been working together as the THYME Cluster for the previous three years. Join them to hear about solutions that seek to upgrade biomass from waste sources as well as technologies that allow more sustainable forms of biomass to be utilised. Representatives from industry and government agencies will outline the challenges and opportunities for new processes and technologies as we transition away from fossil fuels.

The event features guest speaker, Olivier Macé of Broadmanor Consulting Limited, who has extensive experience of the UK and overseas Biofuels industry and now brings his unique insight into the end-to-end biofuels value chain into his consultancy business.

Alternative fuels made from crops and waste products, known as biofuels, potentially offer many advantages over petroleum. They could help us tackle global warming and reduce our dependence on oil imports. But biofuels have drawbacks too. Critics think their environmental benefits are overstated and argue that it takes up land that would otherwise be used for growing food. Join this webinar from the THYME Cluster to find out more about the contentious topic of biomass for biofuels production and how they can become a truly sustainable part of the regional bioeconomy.

This event will be held online over Zoom.
