The event is co-organised by the three FP7 projects, BIOCORE, EUROBIOREF and SUPRABIO

BIOCORE, EUROBIOREF and SUPRABIO are three ambitious projects that aim to clearly demonstrate the suitability of certain advanced technologies for the industrial transformation of lignocellulosic biomass into useful products such as fuels, chemicals, materials and food ingredients. BIOCORE, EUROBIOREF and SUPRABIO are large-scale collaborative research projects funded by the European Commission under the FP7 program. The three projects started in 2010 and will run for 4 years. 

Activities in BIOCORE (BIOCOmmodity Refinery; FP7 grant 241566) are structured around a concept that aims to demonstrate how multiple types of lignocellulosic biomass, such as crop residues or wood can be used in a highly resource efficient way to produce a variety of products, including biofuels, polymer building blocks, specialty chemicals and even ingredients for the food industry.  The aim of BIOCORE is to use all biomass components, thus satisfying requirements for maximal economic and environmental sustainability, and investigate how the concept can be implemented both in Europe and elsewhere.

EUROBIOREF (European Multilevel Integrated Biorefinery Design for Sustainable Biomass Processing; FP7 grant 241718) focuses on the entire biomass to products value chain, from the production of non-edible crops to the manufacture of commercial bioproducts. The project has been conducted by a  multidisciplinary collaborative network, which works on areas such as biomass pre-treatment, and many types of conversion technologies, including biocatalytic processes, advanced chemical catalysis and thermochemistry. Specifically designed value chains are assessed using life cycle and socio-economic analyses.

The overall objective of SUPRABIO (Sustainable products from economic processing of biomass in highly integrated Biorefineries; FP7 grant 241640) is the research, development and demonstration of novel intensified unit operations that can be integrated into economic and sustainable biorefinery options for the production of second-generation biofuels, intermediates and high value products, together with assessment of the outcomes to inform and enable sustainable implementation. SUPRABIO is working on a number of fronts with the aim of producing a toolkit of processes which can be used in a variety of applications.
