The Deepwater Horizon oil spill in April 2010 has showed us that increasing risk and costs have to be accepted to satisfy the increasing demand of material and energy resources from a worldwide perspective. Increasing the recovery of raw materials is one possibility but another one is increasing efficiency in processing and production. Therefore the development and improvement of processing technologies is a crucial factor for economic progression. This conference should give an overview of new developments in processing technologies in the forest and biobased products industries.
