Bioenergy and co-production of transportation fuels and chemicals

Research and technical development on biooenergy and chemicals. The results will help minimize cost and environmental impact through efficient use of energy and biomass resources, maximize volume and quality through production efficiency and runnability, meet societal needs with products made from forest biomass, and enable circular economy.

Bioenergy and bio-based chemicals and transportation fuels are high on the political agenda today as a way to reduce emissions of fossil-based CO2, increase the use of renewable materials and utilize local resources. Bioenergy conversion technologies need to increase profitability by utilizing cheap fuels and decrease emissions. We will address bioenergy conversion, as well as process and feedstock selection and optimization for bio-based transportation fuels. Emphasis will also be on identification of co-production routes to produce chemicals in order to improve profitability and facilitate commercial introduction.
