Umeå Renewable Energy Meeting 2016, 23-25 February
UREM 2016 - Understanding and applying photosynthesis for a safe future
Organizers: Christiane Funk, Sylvia Larsson, Johannes Hansson and Johannes Messinger
The Umeå Renewable Energy meeting 2016 is dedicated to presentations and discussions about how fuels and valuable products can be made with the help of sunlight. Examples are the storage of light energy in molecular fuels employing artificial photosynthesis, the production of biofuels and biomass by algae and trees, the cleaning of waste water and flue gasses using photosynthetic organisms, and the production of fish food by algae.
