Report on wood-based biorefinery published.

A report on wood-based refinery, titled A Bio-solution to Climate Change has been published by a Taskforce on Biorefinery of the European Forest-Based Sector Technology Platform (FTP). The group, chaired by Marco Mensink of the European Council of Real Estate Professions (CEPI), has had the aim to create a network of leading forest-based sector experts within the domain of wood-based biorefinery.

The report describes the status of biorefinery in Europe and suggests five main directions for future research. These directions are:

  • selective and efficient separation and conversion processes;
  • biorefinery as source for wood-based solid and liquid biofuels;
  • recycled fibre biorefinery;
  • above-sector synergies with the agricultural and chemical sector and
  • socio-economic impacts of biorefinery development.

The full report can be downloaded from the FTP-Homepage:
Part 1 (PDF-Document, 10.4 MB),
Part 2 (PDF-Document, 10.2 MB).
