Goals and Objectives and Areas of the Track

This track presents the latest ideas and developments concerning novel bio-based products as well as sustainable biomass fractionation and conversion processes, all based on renewable or recycled raw materials available in the Nordic countries.

Length and content of the proposed abstract to the track
