Boosting European Citizen’s Knowledge and Awareness on Bioeconomy – BLOOM Project

BLOOM is a European Horizon 2020 funded project which aims at supporting the implementation of  innovation driven ambitions by strengthening dialogue and knowledge on bioeconomy and its possibilities. A sustainable bioeconomy promises to foster a circular economy and to enhance climate change mitigation, while reducing dependence on fossil fuels. Are European citizens well aware of…

Innovation Transfer In Sustainable Wood Mobilisation: ROSEWOOD Network

The EU-funded Horizon 2020 ROSEWOOD network enhances sustainable wood mobilisation from all sources by bringing together key players of the domain. The final aim is to stimulate the exchange of innovations and best practices among European regions. Tackling climate change calls for environmental protection and greater sustainability of our value chains, both of which forestry…

Avanced Biofuels Out of Sustainable Feedstocks From Underutilised Lands – FORBIO

The Horizon 2020 FORBIO project assesses the viability of using EU underutilised lands for sustainable bioenergy feedstock production whithout affecting food and feed supply. Biomass for bioenergy is often seen as a competitor for land uses. However, underutilised land (contaminated, abandoned, marginal, fallow land etc.) which is not or cannot be used for food/feed production…

New Bio-chemical Technologies For Added-value Bio-based Products – EnzOx2

The Horizon 2020 EnzOx2 project is a Research & Innovation Action co-funded by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking. It has the aim of developing new bio-chemical technologies based on oxydative enzymes to obtain bio-based products. The sustainable production of chemical building blocks, different additives and ingredients, and other added value products from plant biomass –…

New Biofuture Report: GHG Goals Out of Reach Without Biofuels and Bioproducts

Report maps pathways to progress and shows how scaling-up a sustainable low carbon bioeconomy can promote sustainable development, economic growth, energy security, and fight climate change. December 10, Katowice, Poland: A landmark new multi-country report launched today states that the world’s greenhouse gas reduction goals cannot be met without greater use of biofuels and bioproducts, and…

Bioenergy Retrofits for Europe’s Industry -BIOFIT Project

14 December 2018 EU-funded BIOFIT project will facilitate bioenergy production by retrofitting Europe’s industries. Enschede – Bioenergy is an essential formof renewable energy, providing an estimated 60% of current renewable energy supply in the EU28. Anno 2018 the production of bioenergy takes on many forms. Spurred by innovation, bioenergy technologies are becoming ever more advanced…

From Wood-based Fructose to Bioplastics – ReTAPP

ReTAPP Horizon 2020 project aimed at producing wood-based fructose for the production of bioplastics to be converted into plastic bottles and plastic packaging. The shift from a fossil-based economy to a more sustainable bio-economy requires a growing supply of biobased chemicals, materials and fuels. These materials can be manufactured from various biomass feedstocks, such as agricultural products,…
