MARINE BIOPROCESS ENGINEERING

-An international Symposium-

November 8-11, 1998
Conference Center `De Leeuwenhorst', Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands

Objectives
Marine bioprocess engineering is a relatively young and rapidly emerging
field of science. Research activities on marine bioprocess engineering have
particularly been stimulated by the recent discovery of many useful marine
natural products.
The aim of this conference is to evaluate the current progress on the
biotechnological exploitation of marine organisms. The conference will
focus on the bioprocess engineering aspects of marine metabolite
production.

 Keynote lectures:
        *"The bioprocess-technological potential of the sea", by Dr Rita
                R. Colwell, Maryland, USA
        *"Marine Bioproducts Engineering: The Missing Link to
                Commercialization", by Dr Oskar R. Zaborsky, Hawaii, USA
 Topics
        1. Marine natural products (invited speaker: Dr Murray H.G.
                Munro, Canterbury, New Zealand)
        2. Energy production with marine microorganisms (invited speaker:
                Dr Jun Miyake, Higashi, Japan)
        3. In vitro cultivation of marine organisms (invited speaker: Dr
                Baruch Rinkevich, Haifa, Israel)
        4. Design and scale-up of in vitro cultures (invited speaker: Dr
                Emilio Molina Grima, Almeria, Spain)
        5. Product recovery techniques (invited speaker: Dr John
                Krijgsman, Delft, The Netherlands)
