Bioenergy and co-production of transportation fuels and chemicals

The proposal for The Bioeconomy Research Programme 2018–2020 consists of a number of programme areas containing a variety of research topics. The programme areas each address mutual questions and opportunities of great interest to a consortium of RISE customers. All programme areas are planned for three years.

Bioenergy and bio-based chemicals and transportation fuels are high on the political agenda today as a way to reduce emissions of fossil-based CO2, increase the use of renewable materials and utilize local resources. Bioenergy conversion technologies need to increase profitability by utilizing cheap fuels and decrease emissions. We will address bioenergy conversion, as well as process and feedstock selection and optimization for bio-based transportation fuels. Emphasis will also be on identification of co-production routes to produce chemicals in order to improve profitability and facilitate commercial introduction.
