BIO-based products from FORestry via Economically Viable European Routes (BIOFOREVER).
BIOFOREVER (BIO-based products from FORestry via Economically Viable European Routes) is a recently started European project to demonstrate the feasibility of conversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks like wood into chemical building blocks and high added value products. The project will run under the umbrella of the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) which is a public private partnership between the European Union and the Biobased Industry Consortium. The BIOFOREVER project consortium consists of 14 European companies. The project will run 3 years from September 2016- September 2019 with a total investment of 16 million euro.
The BIOFOREVER project objective is the technical and economical demonstration of 5 different value chains from feedstock to final product. Within this framework, several conversion technologies will be demonstrated up to pre-industrial scale for several types of feedstock while commercialization routes for the most promising value chains will be delivered.
