Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) drive innovation throughout the economy, in particular the circular bioeconomy, and cut across industries with a trend towards full convergence and integration. They underpin Europe leadership across the circular bioeconomy value chains such as food and feed, bioenergies, biomaterials, biochemicals and have the capacity to improve people’s health and safety and drastically reverse climate change.
Their growing complexity makes it more difficult for industry and SMEs to capture fully their innovation potential, and requires an important understanding of non-technological aspects. Investments in KETS allows industries to retain competitiveness and capitalize on new markets.

BIOKET, our annual conference, contributes to the spreading of emerging KETs, by offering to all actors of the circular bioeconomy world the possibility to meet, exchange and build together a sound understanding of innovations in the processes and technologies to convert Biomass into high value products.

Our event aims at proposing high quality technical presentation allowing each one to deepen his understanding of what are the challenges and opportunities offered by emerging KETs in terms of competitiveness, new products and new market opening, to ensure you strategically takes the right decisions for the future development of your activities.

BIOKET addresses all the technological aspects of processes:

  • Mechanical, chemical, biotechnological and thermochemical
  • Pretreatment, fractionation and conversion of the biomass
  • All scaling up facet of the development of an adapted cascade process for renewable resources transformation and valorization  :
    • economic model,
    • intra and extra development strategy,
    • financial risk assessment,
    • industrial regulations,
    • consumer acceptability, ip… ,
    • with a particular focus on the sustainability and circularity of the KETs.

During BIOKET you meet high level speakers, decision makers and experts to build successful partnerships and to speed up time to market of your innovations.
