Together with a number of other renewable resources, biomass will potentially constitute an important part of the future energy supply. Biomass will be the major substitute (and probably the only one) for oil as a feedstock for industrial processes. The conversion of biomass will take place in bio refineries corresponding to traditional oil-based refineries. These processes will be based on microorganisms (fungi and bacteria) and microbial produced enzymes.
Agricultural residues, algae, industrial wastes from food production, and other biomasses, which are converted into high value products such as biofuels, biological active compounds and biochemicals for the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, will replace mineral oil.
During the Master’s programme in Sustainable Biotechnology at AAU CPH, you get insight into international research in sustainability, biofuels, and the use of biomass as raw material in bio refineries. You get to work with the newest technologies and scientific research within these rapidly expanding fields.
In your semester projects, you and your project group will work with relevant issues in relation to sustainable biotechnology and you are challenged to use all of your knowledge to come up with possible solutions. You are encouraged to occasionally collaborate with external organisations and businesses in your projects to get an idea of the work processes and current issues in the industry. This will prepare you better for your own work life after you graduate and it will provide you with the opportunity to build a professional network while you are still studying.
