Baroness Eluned Morgan, Assembly Member for Mid & West Wales, visited IBERS on 2nd March, ahead of her keynote speech on Brexit at Aberystwyth University.

As part of her visit to Gogerddan campus, the Baroness visited the BEACON laboratory, where much of the secondary processing activity is conducted, including fermentation, filtration and steam explosion. Accompanied by Professor Iain Donnison, Director of BEACON, and Dr Joe Gallagher, the Baroness was given a brief overview of the award-winning BEACON biorefining project, and shown some feedstocks undergoing fermentation in the pilot scale facilities.
