Bioref-integ

EU

This method is the result of an EU project, with the aim to develop advanced bio-refinery schemes to be integrated into existing industrial fuel producing complexes. Several biomass processing sectors were considered within the project: sugar/starch (bioethanol), biodiesel, pulp and paper, conventional oil refineries, power production, the food industry and the agrosector.

Please note:
