The development of our current agricultural system has been mainly market driven and only recently also influenced by environmental legislation. However, from a natural science point of view, and from the perspective of the demands of the coming bioeconomic era, agriculture is not very resource efficient, and does not deliver the amount of biomass it potentially could. This talk will focus on the potential role of biorefineries in utilising more resource efficient crops for new Food, Feed, Fibre and Fuel products. 

About the speaker: Head of CBIO Centre Uffe Jørgensen is a scientist in the area of sustainable intensification of crop production and its use for both bioenergy, feed, food and materials. This includes research on genotypic variation in yield and fuel quality, protein content and quality, environmental aspects of biomass crop production and national inventories of biomass resources. Since 2017, he has headed the new cross-disciplinary AU Centre for Circular Bioeconomy (www.cbio.au.dk). CBIO activities include research within the entire production chain ranging from cultivating and procuring biomasses from land and sea, logistics, management, refining, product development and tests, recirculation, impact on nature and environment as well as research in relation to society and the economy.
