Kick-off seminar, Bio4Fuels, 9 februar 2017

Successful kick-off for Bio4Fuels

February 9, 2017 Bio4Fuels kicked off with a 2-day seminar with a large number of participants from around the globe. Conclusion? The stakes are high and the expectations are great. 

A Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) based at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and lead by SINTEF.

The Centre aims to develop innovative technology and support industries to realize economic and sustainable conversion of lignocellulosic  biomass and organic residues to transportation fuels, along with added value chemicals, heat and power. 

Key research is to increase the effeciency and yields of major process steps within the different value chains, as well as achieving techno-economic insights for the optimal integration within and across value chains and greater understanding of the environmental consequences of the various value chains.

Bio4Fuels for the first time brings together leading Norwegian research institutions, universities, key national and international partners, major forestry resources owners and regional authority into one common initiative on production of energy carriers from renewable sources.
