The European Commission has launched the Bioeconomy Knowledge Centre with the aim of collecting, structuring and making available a wide range of scientific evidence related to the sector.
The Bio4Products project is employing an innovative conversion technology called fast pyrolysis to transform solid materials like straw and bark into a liquid, which can be used to produce bio-based products. But what exactly is fast pyrolysis, and why is it being used?
Bio4Products consortium partners met at BTG’s facilities in the Netherlands on 9-10 March for the first project progress meeting.
Already six months into the four year project, partners came together to share and discuss the work carried out so far.
The next meeting will be hosted by Hexion in September 2017.
In Germany, the scientific journal Energy Technology has just published a Special Issue on Pyrolysis for Energy Technologies.
