EXCornsEED invites you to participate in one of the biggest Networking Event & Conference of the bio-based industry!

The EXCornsEED consortium is pleased to invite to you to attend the Conference “Valorisation of proteins and bio-active compounds from biorefinery side-streams”, which will take place on 20 November 2019 in Bucharest, Romania. The conference is organised within the project “Separation, fractionation and isolation of biologically active natural substances from corn oil and other side streams – EXCornsEED” (2018-2021), a Bio-based Industries Research and Innovation action funded by BBI JU, Grant Agreement No: 792054.

The EXCornsEED project aims to exploit the convergence between science, chemistry, biology, engineering and biotechnology tools for the creation of new knowledge and innovative applications to develop and validate an integrated process of innovative and highly sustainable extraction, purification and concentration technologies to be applied to biorefineries side streams.

The objectives are the recovery of proteins and several other bio-active compounds and the preparation of these as ingredients for food, specialty chemicals and cosmetics markets.

In this conference, we will present the progress achieved so far in the project and we invite other scientists and industry representatives active in this field to share their results with us. Please register as a speaker and / or participant at the following link:


The draft agenda of the event can be found here.

The event will take place at ICECHIM premises in Bucharest, Romania, Splaiul Independentei no. 202. Travel expenses must be covered by the participants. You can find some useful information about travelling to Bucharest here. Participation in the event is free of charge, but places are limited, so please register as soon as possible.
