H2020 – PULP2VALUE – Processing Underutilised Low value sugarbeet Pulp into VALUE added products

Laufzeit: 07.2015 - 06.2019

Sugar beet pulp accounts for approx. 13 million tonnes in Europe and is a major residual stream from the sugar beet industry, which is currently valorised as low value feed and/or green gas. 

The PULP2VALUE project aims to demonstrate an integrated and cost-effective cascading biorefinery system to refine sugar beet pulp and isolate high value products for detergents, personal care, oil & gas, paints & coatings and composites. The project will spur rural development in sugar beet growing areas by connecting them in new cross-sectorial value chains with various industries, including the chemical and food industry.

In this project, nova is responsible for the sustainability assessment including market research, techno-economic evaluation, Life Cycle Assessment, and the establishment of a communication and dissemination strategy. Check out the project’s website for more information: http://pulp2value.eu

This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 669105.
