A roadmap has been published showing how Europe’s chemical industry could transition to being 25% bio-based by 2030.
BTG’s fast pyrolysis biomass conversion technology will be coming to Finland as part of a €100 million deal signed this month.
Bio4Products aims to develop a new generation of products that are more sustainable than their fossil based predecessors. To check the sustainability risks and environmental performance of the bio-based products under development, BTG Biomass Technology Group is conducting a number of studies within the project.
An extensive study into the availability and quality of biomass resources in Europe has shown the potential for new lignocellulosic biorefineries to be opened in France, Finland, Romania and the Netherlands. The study was conducted within the Bio4Products Horizon 2020 project, which is testing the feasibility of a fast pyrolysis based biorefinery concept.
