April 3, 2017 @ 11:00 - 19:00 CEST

Biosurfactants have the potential to be used in a wide variety of applications. Drivers to use biosurfactants are to increase the biobased content of the end-product, to replace current substances which are to be banned from market, or their beneficial activity in the end application.
