The 19th edition of the International Conference on Renewable Resources & Biorefineries will take place in Riga, Latvia from Wednesday 31 May until Friday 2 June 2023.

Based on the previous RRB conferences, this conference is expected to welcome about 300 international participants from over 30 countries.

Delegates from university, industry, governmental an non-governmental organizations and venture capital providers will present their views on industrial biotechnology, sustainable (green) chemistry and agricultural policy related to the use of renewable raw materials for non-food applications and energy supply. The conference further aims at providing an overview of the scientific, technical, economic, environmental and social issues of renewable resources and biorefineries in order to give an impetus to the biobased economy and to present new developments in this area. 

The conference will provide a forum for leading political, corporate, academic and financial people to discuss recent developments and set up collaborations.

The three day international conference will consist of plenary lectures, oral presentations, poster sessions and an exhibition. Companies and research organizations are offered the opportunity to organize a satellite symposium. 



The conference will be held at the National Library of Latvia (NLL) which is a scientific and educational centre of national importance safeguarding the published heritage of Latvia and the world. The library is called " the Castle of Light" and represents the struggle of Latvians to establish their national state through strengthening their culture. The library was designed by the international acclaimed Latvian-born architect Gunnar Birkerts, and it is among the most significant cultural projects of the 21st century.
