    BEACON Conference 2017

    Wednesday, 24th May 2017

    Announcing the BEACON conference 2017 on 24th & 25th May at Venue Cymru, Llandudno.

    "Developing a Sustainable Bioeconomy for Wales: A Future Roadmap".

    This free event provides a great line up of speakers, company presentations, networking and a free evening conference dinner on the 24th.

    The award-winning BEACON Wales project works to develop biorefining technology and bio-based product manufacture – two key elements of the bioeconomy - and is a Welsh Government EU funded collaboration led by Aberystwyth University working with Bangor and Swansea Universities.

    BEACON helps clients invest in the right technologies to grow their businesses, demonstrating new bio-based processes and products at a commercially-relevant scale.

    BEACON is supporting the transition away from fossil resources by making the best use of biorenewable materials and unavoidable wastes and significantly de-risk the innovation process for anyone exploring a bio-based idea. By working collaboratively with industry in Research & Development, BEACON seeks to significantly speed up the commercialisation of new green processes and products from biomass, including: plants, algae, and wastes.

    BEACON is developing new green technologies that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and benefit the environment, and will also offer new opportunities to support economic activity and jobs, in both urban and rural Wales.
