Development of advanced BIOREFinery schemes to be INTEGrated into existing industrial fuel producing complexes

Objective

"The overall aim of BIOREF-INTEG is to develop advanced biorefinery schemes to be integrated into existing industrial fuel producing complexes. S&T project objectives are: to make the production of biofuels more competitive, to identify and develop the optimal integrated biorefinery schemes for the production of best suited ""building blocks"" in terms of processes and bioproducts, and to identify opportunities of various biomass-based sectors to produce fuels while increasing their market competitiveness by co-producing added-value products. Sectors dealt with are: sugar/starch (bioethanol), biodiesel, pulp/paper, conventional oil refinery, power production, food industry, agrosector. The project is performed by 7 separate but strongly interrelated workpackages dealing with: mapping of existing industrial fuel complexes in Europe (reference-cases); definition most promising added-value bioproducts; knowledge import from outside the EC; integral technical, economic and ecological system assessments to select most promising market specific integrated biorefineries; technology deployment; knowledge dissemination and training, and project management. The project is co-ordinated by ECN (The Netherlands). Other participants involved: 4 SMEs (ETC, TK, VFT, Bioro), 3 industries (Greencell, Cehave, Repsol), 2 universities (Aston, UGent) and 3 RTD institutes (VTT, WUR A&F, STFI). Project duration: 24 months. Total requested EC-grant: 995 kEuro."
