Applications of Bio-based Furan Building-block Chemicals
A free in-person symposium for producers, users and academics interested in bio-based furan chemicals.
  • Learn about feedstock opportunities for bio-based furan build-block chemicals
  • Discover the diverse range of chemistries being applied to bio-based furan compounds
  • Hear from industry and academia about the development of new sustainable bio-based furan-derived products
  • Discuss with various stakeholders the opportunities that exist for furan-derived products in sectors such as home and personal care, plastics and solvents
  • Participate in networking and knowledge transfer activities
Who Should Attend?

This symposium would be of interest to academic and industry personnel focussed on bio-based furan compounds including:
