Professor Manfred Kircher has conducted research in the fields of bioindustry and bioeconomics for over 25 years. He was previously in charge of biotech project development at Degussa AG (one of the world’s largest chemical companies, now part of Evonik Industries AG). Professor Manfred Kircher is currently chairman of the board of the German biotech cluster CLIB2021.

Using renewable energy sources is one of the most discussed issues of the twenty-first century. Why is there such a great need to create new materials and bioactive products from reprocessed raw materials? What are the processes agro-industrial raw materials go through before reaching the consumer market? How do you engineer efficient production and what is needed to make biotech projects commercially successful? Professor Kircher and Russian experts invited to the lecture discussed these and other questions.
