Taking part in the Solar Biorefinery concept: Congress in South America


I International Congress on Biorefineries and Renewable Energies supported in ICT: Business Opportunities based on Technologies and Innovation, Medellin, COLOMBIA, September 17th to 20th 2018.

Keynote lecture by Prof. Dr. Juan Carlos Colmenares: Valorization of biomass through low-temperature hydrothermal transformations assisted by photocatalysis”, (co-author Dr. V. Nair).

High impact of the congress in Colombia’s mass media:





J.C. Colmenares is very grateful for the partial support from the National Science Centre in Poland within Sonata Bis project no. 2015/18/E/ST5/00306 and OPUS-13 project nr 2017/25/B/ST8/01592. J.C.C. is also grateful for the Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia (Medellin, Colombia) special invitation and for the support from COST Action FP1306 via promoting networking and collaboration.
