Second life of wood: technology to dissolve waste wood to get raw materials

Project description

Growing value chains from waste wood

A renewable economy in a bio-based chemical and fuel sector is crucial to mitigate the effects of climate change and environmental degradation. Each year about 1 billion tonnes of waste biomass is available globally from forestry and agriculture. Due to the ineffective and costly technologies, only half of the 70 million tonnes of European waste wood get recycled. The EU funded BioFlex project proposes a novelty technology that dissolves the waste wood to obtain raw materials for further utilisation. From the unwanted waste wood, it obtains low-cost raw materials to produce high-quality bioplastics, common chemicals and novel materials. This solution will reduce air and soil pollution and improve air quality while supporting governmental and industrial waste reduction targets.
