The European Society of Biochemical Engineering Sciences stimulates scientific advances in the field of biochemical engineering and provides a platform for communication, education and interdisciplinary exchange. ESBES serves as an interface between industry and academia and fosters cooperation of bioengineers from all over Europe.



(Bio)Process Engineering - a Key to Sustainable Development

A joint event of ProcessNet and DECHEMA-BioTechNet Jahrestagungen 2022 together with 13th ESBES Symposium

12 - 15 September 2022,  Eurogress, Aachen, Germany

Sustainability is the one dominating challenge today. Process engineering, chemical technology and biotechnology are key to solving it: By closing cycles, increasing efficiency, coupling sectors, and exploiting the potential of renewable resources, they ensure to meet the global need for food, mobility, housing, energy and medical care while at the same time protecting resources.
In 2022, DECHEMA, ProcessNet and ESBES join forces: At the joint Annual Conference of ProcessNet and DECHEMA-BioTechNet together with the ESBES symposium, researchers from industry and science will present developments and solutions on topics such as reaction engineering, energy generation and storage, bioprocesses, synthetic biology, education and many more.

Main Conference Topics:

Plant and process concepts; Biotechnology; (Bio)pharmaceutical processing; Circular (Bio)Economy; Digital transformation;Energy transition; Fluid and solids process engineering; Industrial water and wastewater technology; New materials for process engineering; Education 4.0; Student and PhD student programme

NEW: BASF Poster Award:

We all need answers for problems like climate change, scarcity of resources and waste generation. Innovations based on chemistry are key to finding such answers and they will change the chemical industry in a fundamental way. BASF as an innovative chemical company therefore offers a BASF poster award for the outstanding poster contribution addressing the “Transformation of the Chemical Industry”; including e.g. greenhouse gas emission avoidance, recycling or renewable raw materials. The prize money of 1.500€ will be awarded by a scientific jury based on the best combination of poster and speed talk.

We look forward to welcoming you to Aachen!
