Session B: Bioeconomy
Description:

In this session, we invite industry actors to address opportunities and challenges in the bioeconomy and related technologies. How do we bring the Danish innovation and research solutions to the global, sustainable bioeconomy?

Biobased economy cuts across sectors and industries and includes production of renewable biological resources as well as the use of side-streams and rest products to produce high-value products within food, feed, biobased materials, chemicals, cosmetics, medicinal goods, energy. The precondition for the bioeconomy is new knowledge, new technologies, new business models, and new value chains.

Session C: Catalysis

Description: The increasing energy demands and impending global warming require us to urgently develop sustainable fuels and chemicals through fossil-free pathways. Conversion of simple molecules into valuable fuels and chemicals by means of chemical or electrochemical ways will play a critical role in the future. To improve reaction kinetics and selectivity, catalysts are indispensable. This session focuses on the design, synthesis, advanced characterization, and performance test of catalysts for important chemical, electrochemical reactions with industrial applications.

Session E: Energy
- How to create cleaner and more renewable energy supplies
Description:  As part of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), SDG-7 specifically addresses the challenge of “ensuring access to affordable, reliable,  sustainable, and modern energy for all”.
The focus of this session will be on the sustainability dimension of energy systems. In our striving towards sustainable societies, the development of energy technologies need to be accompanied with comprehensive and quantitative sustainability assessments that address climate change impacts as well as other relevant environmental problems, such as metals depletion, chemical pollution, land use, etc. Addressing such environmental issues is essential to identify, develop, refine and/or prioritise energy solutions that are as sustainable as possible. Oral and poster contributions providing technological advances, case studies and/or potential challenges and solutions to move towards more sustainable energy products/technologies/systems (specific energy technologies, energy system models, etc.) are welcome in the session.

Session L: Smart Liveable Cities
Urbanization, Buildings, Transport, Water, Infrastructure 
Description:  How can urban infrastructure and architectural engineering provide more sustainable and smart liveable cities? Industry and households become ever more integrated with real time control of environmental systems and increasingly optimizing supply control of e.g. district heating systems and intelligent energy systems for variable renewable energy supplies. Drains and automatic flood warning systems may contribute to climate adaptation, and blue-green multifunctional areas may become crucial elements in urban planning together with transport management. All in pursuit to mitigate environmental impacts as the world’s population unavoidably becomes increasingly urbanized.

Session R: Biorefining
- From renewable plant- and algae-based biomass to biofuels, biomaterials and high added-value biochemicals
Description:  Integrated production of food and feed ingredients, chemicals, materials and energy carriers from residual biomass within the so-called biorefinery (biomass-based refinery) is an essential part of a sustainable future. Identification and development of optimal combinations of substrates, conversion processes and utilization of the final products is a very complex process. This session invites speakers to present new, innovative and promising technologies for sustainable production of valuable commodities in a biorefinery context. Conversion routes include, but are not limited to, biological processes.

Bio-refinery and carbon-capturing from sustainable cultivated seaweed

Ocean Rainforest is a company engaged in nearshore and offshore cultivation of large brown seaweeds in the Faroe Islands and California for the production of sustainable blue biomass for the food and feed market, and potentially also for bio-plastics and healthy textiles production. This new blue bio-economy is dependent on successful cascading refinery processes of "low hanging fruits" to create a profitable and scalable industry. This is the focus of the EU BBI funded project MACRO CASCADE where Ocean Rainforest is a partner.

Session S: Smart cities in Smart Societies
The session aim to inspire and identify potential project ideas and new partnerships

Description: 

 Creating sustainable and livable cities demands a holistic approach combining tech with the needs of the users.  It also requires a close dialogue between cities, companies and academic disciplines breaking down silos between the universities, the political level and the citizens. 
This workshop will provide insight from a concrete project focusing on how to improve indoor climate and energy efficiency in local schools in a Danish municipality involving teachers, technical personal and children. Based on this example the project has also looked into how to obtain an evidence based measure of the effect of a given renovation and the potential for cutting costs on energy consumption in the schools - and in the municipality.
Through a cross-disciplinary approach of scientists, anthropologists working closely with the municipality and the users of the school the project demonstrates catalysing transformative, systemic change through systems innovation, looking into the role of human agency in the transformation of systems.
The format of the session will be presentations combined with interactive workshop discussion on different tools demonstrated in the project and best practices and learnings from a pluri-disciplinary approach.

Session U: Sustainability in a Chemical World
- Chemicals and Nanoparticles, their toxicology and risks 
Description:  The societal challenges related to chemicals and nanoparticles in the environment are profound, multifaceted and with wide ranging consequences. The question is how we can achieve sustainability and a future circular economy in a world that unavoidably relies heavily on access to industrial chemicals. The session discusses improved uses of chemicals, substitution options, the challenges related to assessing risks in relation to human health and the environment, aiming at finding ways to achieve sustainable uses of chemicals in the future.

Description: 

Water systems in cities are growing increasingly complex. New treatment methods, new water qualities, and new resource recovery methods are being mixed to ensure the reliability of water supply and sanitation throughout society.
The session invites speakers and participants with an interest in measuring the sustainability of water systems. Key questions are: Why do we measure sustainability? How do we assess
sustainability? Sustainability aspects include but are not limited to: life-cycle assessment, economy and value added, health impacts. We consider the entire urban water system including water supply, stormwater management, industrial water and resource recovery from wastewater.

Session X: Regional Transformation for Sustainability
- Economic growth, infrastructure, and organisational capacity
Description:

What are the best strategies and means for ensuring regional sustainability for well defined geographic areas, especially areas in need of economic growth?
Three important issues to answer this question will be addressed:
- A comprehensive and cross-cutting discussion of the most important drivers and barriers for ensuring sustainable regional growth and development especially in needed areas.
- Discussion of strategies and means on how sustainable business development and sustainable economic growth can be coordinated in a synergetic way and timely done, in tandem with the necessary infrastructure development including transportation and energy systems and water, wastewater and solid waste systems based on the principles of sustainability.
- The necessary and timely organisational capacity within regional and local authorities providing the enabling framework for the above.
Case studies will be presented from invited speakers and submitted abstracts.
