Various technologies for the conversion of woody biomass to lignocellulosic sugars
Workshop May 17th, 2019, 9.30 – 12.30 h, Maternushaus, Cologne
The goal of the BIOFOREVER project is to demonstrate the feasibility of an European biorefinery for the production of lignocellulosic sugars, lignin/lignosulfonates and other (downstream) products including carbon binders, enzymes, ethanol, butanol, FDCA, nano-celluloses and resin acids. Various technologies for the conversion of woody biomass to lignocellulosic sugars are presented and discussed such as API Europe’s AVAP technology, Avantium’s DAWN Technology, Borregaard’s BALI technology and BPF’s mild acid/steam explosion technology.
The intention of the workshop is also to create interest amongst workshop participants to explore participation in biorefinery projects as feedstock suppliers, for the off-take of ethanol, cellulosic sugars or other bio-based products and/or as investors.
The workshop is a satellite event of the 12th International Conference on Bio-based Materials
