HORIZON 2020 – BIOFOREVER: BIO-based products from FORestry

Laufzeit: 09.2016 - 08.2019

BIOFOREVER (BIO-based products from FORestry via Economically Viable European Routes) will demonstrate the feasibility of the conversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks like wood into chemical building blocks and high added value products. The project runs under the umbrella of the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) which is a public private partnership between the European Union and the Biobased Industry Consortium. The BIOFOREVER project consortium consists of 14 European companies. The project will run 3 years from September 2016- August 2019 with a total investment of 16 million euro.

The BIOFOREVER project objective is the technical and economical demonstration of 5 different value chains from feedstock to final product. Within this framework, several conversion technologies will be demonstrated up to pre-industrial scale for several types of feedstock while commercialization routes for the most promising value chains will be delivered.

In this project, the nova-Institute conducts a multi-criteria feedstock evaluation as well as market study on the consumer perception, demand and GreenPremium prices for 2nd generation biomass and products thereof.

BIOFOREVER receives funding from the European Community's Horizon 2020 (H2020) under the grant agreement No. 720710.
