Final Report - BIOPOL (Assessment of biorefinery concepts and the implications for agricultural and forestry policy)

Project ID: 44336
Funded under: FP6-FOOD

Abstract

This is the final report of the BIOPOL project, which was a two-year research project funded by the European Commission since 2007 through the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The overall goal of BIOPOL was to assess the status (technical, social, environmental, political, and implementation) of innovative biorefinery concepts and the implications for agricultural and forestry policy.

The report begins with explaining the project's background and objectives and then introduces the basics of biorefinery terms and practices. It goes on to analyse the work done and the results obtained during the study of various aspects, like policy making, rural development, public awareness and the potential of biorefineries. The scenario-based analysis conducted throughout the project is presented and analysed and finally, there are recommendations for policy making and further research.
