Importance & Scope:
Industrial Biotechnology is a set of practices that uses living cells or component cells such as enzymes to generate industrial products & processes. It is a key enabling technology to realize a bio economy that uses biological resources as an input to industrial processes, and bio-based processes to help industries become more environmentally sustainable. Industrial Biotechnology Congress will provide a platform for researchers and decision makers in biotechnology to present their latest findings and learn about all the important developments in biotechnology.
Industrial Bio-2015 will cover the translational nature of biotechnological research, with emphasis on both the basic science as well as its applications in industry and academia. This event will promote global networking among business leaders, investors, and policy makers in biofuels, biobased products, and renewable chemicals. The congress comprises the topics like industrial fermentation of bio based products, genome engineering for industrial applications and these are having most established applications in food & beverage sector.
Through this congress will get all relevant information regarding how to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing; for example by treating industrial wastewater onsite using biological mediums such as microbes.
Birmingham in the West Midlands is the Britain's second largest city. Known in the Victorian era, as the "City of a 1000 Trades" and the "Workshop of the World", Brum as locals call the city, is enjoying 21st century resurgence as a great shopping and cultural destination. Birmingham was at the heart of the UK's industrial revolution, and its wealth was built upon the multitude of trades that were spawned. This led to a massive canal network, with more miles of canals than Venice or Amsterdam (though they're very different types of canal). The city is a major international commercial centre and an important transport, retail, events and conference hub.
Birmingham has many literary associations - not only JRR Tolkien, but also Washington Irving, who wrote Rip Van Winkle while lodging here with his sister's family, and Conan Doyle, who bought a violin in Sherlock Street while a medical student in Birmingham. The authors Jim Crace, Judith Cutler and David Lodge are also residents. The nearby locations of Shropshire, Warwick, and Stratford-Upon-Avon provide more of the stereotypical images of "olde" England. However, Birmingham has many of its own tourist attractions, has an extremely lively night life, and the shopping is arguably one of the best outside of London.

Industrial Biotechnology Sector in UK
Major segments in Industrial Biotechnology sector include bio fuels, specialist services, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals and agro industry. The largest segment in terms of turnover is the specialist services segment with just over £200m of turnover based on providing services, equipment and materials into the sector in the UK and overseas. The largest group of companies in the specialist suppliers segment supply enzymes and enzyme technology and all together these companies represent 87% of the turnover.

Glance at market of Industrial Biotechnology:
Industrial biotechnology, sometimes referred to as white biotechnology, is the application of biotechnology for industrial purposes, including the manufacture of feedstock chemicals (e.g. succinic and lactic acids), fine chemicals (e.g. amino acids), biopolymers and bio-plastics and biofuels. The market in 2011 was estimated at £32bn based on the market value of products such as amino acids, glycerin, lactic acid, vitamins and alcohols and involves some 4,000 companies worldwide. (Presentation from Industrial Biotechnology Leadership forum, Jan 2013).
The production of industrial enzymes, a particularly strength of the European region, is another significant market with a global value of £1.9bn in 2011 for products used in the food, brewing, detergent and animal feed industries (Global Industrial Enzymes Market 2012-2016, TechnNavio, 2013). The biofuels market has grown rapidly since 2005 encouraged by mandatory use regulations. The global biofuels demand in the 2010 was estimated at 59.2bn US gallons consisting of mainly ethanol and biodiesel (Biofuels – A Global Market Overview, Industry Experts, April 2013) produced from feedstock’s such as corn, sugar cane and wheat. The market is particularly strong in the North and South America, with revenues within the USA accounting for 45% of the global market in 2011(Global Biofuel Market Outlook to 2016 – Going Mainstream through Government Support, EN Research, Nov 2012).
