ICFAR in other parts of the world

Fri, 06/21/2013

While travelling in Italy, Franco Berruti visited the University of Firenze in the morning of June 7 and delivered a talk entitled “Fractional condensation of bio-oil vapors produced from birch bark pyrolysis”.  In the afternoon, he visited the University of Pistoia and gave a more general presentation to a broad audience entitled “Black Gold: Pyrolytic conversion of agricultural and forestry residues into bio-oil and bio-char”. Interestingly, Pistoia is the “Trees Capital of Italy” and the presentation stimulated a great deal of interest among the producers, politicians and the general public.

On June 19, Franco visited the University of Salento in Lecce. The visit included the Department of Engineering Innovation where he introduced ICFAR and the various activities in the field of value-added natural products.
