54th Tutzing Symposion 2015: Sustainable Phyto Extracts - Trends, Perspectives and Visions

27 - 30 September 2015
Evangelische Akademie Tutzing, Lake Starnberg, Germany

The Subject Division Plant based Extracts - Products and Processes of ProcessNet (an initiative of DECHEMA – Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology and VDI-GVC – Division Chemical and Process Engineering of the Association of German Engineers), is pleased to invite you to the 54th Tutzing Symposion: Sustainable Phyto Extracts - Trends, Perspectives and Visions, which will take place from 27 - 30 September 2015, Tutzing, Germany.

Plant based extracts, i.e. phyto extracts, are important ingredients in a wide variety of market segments from pharmaceuticals, foods and fragrants to base chemicals. The generation of added value is as wide spread from breeding over processing up to marketing, whereas the products are per definition biodegradable. Parts of this economy are highly regulated and the regulation varies depending on local or regional legislation. Nevertheless, almost all European industries involved are under increasing international competition pressure.

The Symposion is designed to foster exchange and discussion in the areas of sustainable plant production, novel manufacturing technologies, sustainable extraction, distillation and purification processes, application and marketing of extracts. The focus themes are complemented by ethical views, practical “exercises” with products containing or consisting of extracts and a workshop session to discuss and develop innovation strategies.

The Tutzing Symposion 2015 will again provide a unique platform and ample time to exchange ideas between leading scientists and decision makers.

The venue is located directly at the shores of Lake Starnberg 40 km south of Munich and is only about 30 (60) minutes away by train from Munich central station (airport). See www.ev-akademie-tutzing.de/en/ for further details.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Tutzing.
