Status of WP 1 – Task 1.1: completed

  • Task 1.1. Concepts for biorefinery in Europe

    • General definition for Biorefinery selected :

      “Integrated bio-based industries, using a variety of different technologies to produce chemicals, biofuels, food and feed ingredients, biomaterials (including fibers) and power from biomass raw materials »


Status of wp 1

Status of WP 1 – Task 1.1: completed

  • Task 1.1. Concepts for biorefinery in Europe

    • Concepts of Biorefinery selected :

  • Green Biorefinery

    • typically companies that run in a campaign fashion, using wet biomass, i.e. unstable renewable resources, such as potatoes, tapioca, sugar beets and sugar cane

  • Cereal Biorefinery

    • using stable dry cereals such as maize, wheat and rice to produce starch and derivatives

  • Oilseed Biorefinery

    • using oil-containing seeds, such as rapeseed, sunflower, olive and soy, typically producing food and feed ingredients, biodiesel and oleochemical products

  • Forest based and lignocellulosic Biorefinery

    • using forest based and lignocellulosic biomass to produce cellulose fibres, chemicals, lignin and energy.
