In this Congress, the whole value chain will be considered, from cultivation, extraction, processing and recycling steps to the applications: agrofood, nutraceutical, perfume, cosmetic, chemical, fuel, and energy sectors.
Keynote lectures, oral presentations, papers and poster contributions will cover the following topics:
► Alternative solvents for green extraction Supercritical fluid extraction Subcritical water extraction Agrosolvents Solvent free extraction Green solvents: ionic liquids, micellar extraction
► Sustainable and clean extraction technologies Ultrasound and microwave processes High pressure assisted processes Pulse Electric field processes Extrusion Enzymatic extraction
► Innovative extraction process design Experimental design Optimal design Intensification (mini, micro devices) Reaction/separation coupling (Membrane reactors, Adsorptive reactors, Reactive distillation, Reactive extraction) Cleaner production
► Valorisation of by products and biorefinery Thermal processes Innovative technologies Product optimization, characterization, stabilization and applications Industrial applications for the production of fuels, fine chemicals, flavoring agents and pharmaceuticals
► Industrial and case study applications Pharmaceutic Food and nutrition Cosmetic and perfume Fuel and bio-energy enzymatic extraction Fiscal and economic benefits of sustainable green processes
► New tools for green extraction education and operator training
