The concluding seminar of ABOWE Baltic Sea Region Biorefinery project was held in Helsinki Viikki Campus area on 30.10.2014.

In the Concluding seminar were heard test results of a novel biorefinery in three countries (Sweden, Poland, Finland) as well as future trends of biorefining. Moreover, it was possible to visit the mobile pilot station which has been constructed in a Finnish co-operation. The biorefinery has been innovated by Adj. Prof. Elias Hakalehto (Finnoflag Oy and University of Eastern Finland) and the research station has been designed and constructed in the co-operation project in Savonia University of Applied Sciences.

The topic was “Biorefining around the Baltic Sea and Global Ecodevelopment“. The topics integrated the regional and global aspects of developing biorefining. Then acting locally would produce global ecodevelopment. The seminar was held at Helsinki University. The exhibition of the mobile Pilot A biorefinery pilot plant was organized in the area of Gardenia Tropical Garden.
