_ Biorefineries 28–29 September 2013, Brasília, Brazil The 2nd Brazilian Symposium on Biorefineries, to be held 28–29 September 2013 in Brasília, Brazil, is aimed at promoting dialogue about the possibilities and challenges related to biorefineries and the development of a Green Economy. Its topics are as follows: raw materials advances in chemical, biochemical, and thermochemical processes advances in analytical techniques and methodology economic potential of new products and their sustainability The symposium is limited to 300 attendees from industry

Introduction The re-arrangement of whole economies to biological raw materials as source of value increase requires completely new systemic approaches in research, development and industrial implementation. On the one hand, natural sciences will get a leading role in the generation of future industries of the 21 st century. On the other hand, new ways of synergy of agricultural, biological, physical, chemical, and technical sciences have to be elaborated and established. The necessity for biorefinery development in Europe and Germany is specified in the “Rules

Biorefinery is the facility that converts biomass from living or recently living organisms into chemicals, fuels, energy, and materials. This concept is adopted from petroleum industries, which produce an array of products from crude oil ( López et al. 2010 ). Direct utilization of BP for animal feed and composting is the easiest and cheapest way to dispose these wastes. BP also contains various highly valuable compounds ( Table 1 ), which exhibit nutritional, antioxidant, and medicinal properties and is hence used as a feedstock for animals. In recent times, it is also

1 Introduction Crude oil refinery is the world's primary source of energy for decades. However, the sustainability of the crude oil refinery has become questionable given the finite amount of crude oil feedstock and its contribution to the global greenhouse gas emission [ 1 ]. A bio-refinery that converts biomass into valuable products in identical manner to the crude oil processing in oil refinery can address this concern given the renewable nature of biomass, which is carbon neutral, sustainable, and available in abundant amount [ 2 ]. Several platforms are
