2011 TWAS-ROESEAP Symposium on Industrial Biotechnology  Towards a Bio-based Economy of Developing Countries 

August 26-30, 2011

Beijing, China


Global environmental problems and fuel crises have been promoting public attentions on development of biotechnological process and alternative sources for the production of fuels and chemicals. There is broad consensus that Industrial Biotechnology will play a significant role in sustainable chemistry, renewable energy, detergent, textile, food and feed industries. The recent financial crisis has provided even more incentive to boost national green growth initiatives and policies, whereas industrial biotechnology might underpin green growth and innovation worldwide. This is especially true in the developing countries where significant activity is taking place in the field of industrial biotechnology.

The objective of this symposium is to review the most recent progress in the area of industrial biotechnology in developing countries. The symposium will provide a good opportunity for researches from the developing countries to exchange ideas, to share experiences, and to promote international collaboration to accelerate the commercialization of new products or new technologies.


(1) Biorefinery of fuels and chemicals

(2) Production of bulk fermentation products

(3) Biocatalysis and biotransformation

(4) Development of novel bio-based processes

(5) New emerging disciplines


The conference –2011 TWAS-ROESEAP Symposium on Industrial Biotechnology – will be held in three days. Day 1 and day 2 (August 27- August 28) will be academic activities, including oral presentations and poster shows. Day 3, the last day of the symposium will be social activities.
