Metabolic Innovations and Novel Materials for Biofuels

AquaFEED – A biofuel program funded by Nordic Energy Research

The conference will bring together researchers and viewpoints from both chemical and biological sides of biofuel research. The main topics of discussion will be the potential of new materials, including materials related to photonics, chemistry of artificial photosynthesis and photobioreactors, and metabolic innovations including innovative pathways to produce direct fuels like propane or hydrogen, as well as new metabolic pathways for production of carbohydrates.

Invited talks will be presented by:

  • Daniel C. Ducat, Michigan State University
  • Wolfgang Hess, University of Freiburg
  • Jean-David Rochaix, University of Geneva
  • Lothar Wondraczek, University of Jena

In addition, 12 talks will be selected from the abstracts. Posters will be presented throughout the duration of the conference.

The conference venue will be the Ångström Laboratory at Uppsala University, located near to the center of Uppsala. The participation fee is 200 EUR and includes a welcome reception on April 24th, lunches and a congress dinner on April 25th. Please reserve your accommodation from or (search for Uppsala, Sweden).

Please observe that the deadline for registration and abstract submission has been extended to March 15, 2015.

Metabolic Innovations and Novel Materials for Biofuels is a satellite meeting of the first International Solar Fuels Conference (April 25th to May 2nd, 2015, Uppsala, Sweden). If you decide to attend both meetings, then please book your accommodation through the ISFC website.

Looking forward meeting you in Uppsala!
