Woody products for bioindustry
The rising interest in bioproducts is spurring the study of the potential of woody species, trees and shrubs to contribute to the bioindustry. The EU-funded BeonNAT project will increase our knowledge about bioindustry-oriented mixed crops and their potential use to produce raw materials for the bioproduct sector. The project will estimate the basic aspects of the value chain, selecting the most adequate species for different EU countries. It proposes a concept that includes mixed cultivation of selected species using the coppice management systems. BeonNAT will produce eight bioproducts, including essential oils, woodpaper, bioplastics and active carbon, whose tests and related biorefinery processes will be performed in different countries. The project will also estimate the production’s economic, social and environmental impacts.
