BIOFOREVER Workshop: Feasibility of a European Lignocellulosic Biorefinery

17 May 2019, 9:00-12:30 h, Room Adelheid, Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany

BIOFOREVER (BIO-based products from FORestry via Economically Viable European Routes) is a European project with the main objective to demonstrate the feasibility of a European biorefinery for the production of lignocellulosic sugars, lignin/lignosulfonates and other (downstream) products including carbon binders, enzymes, ethanol, butanol, FDCA, nano-celluloses and resin acids.

At this workshop, various technologies for the conversion of woody biomass to lignocellulosic sugars are presented and discussed such as API Europe’s AVAP technology, Avantium’s DAWN Technology, Borregaard’s BALI technology and BPF’s mild acid/steam explosion technology. The intention of the workshop is also to create interest amongst workshop participants to explore participation in biorefinery projects as feedstock suppliers, for the off-take of ethanol, cellulosic sugars or other bio-based products and/or as investors.

The BIOFOREVER project consortium consists of 14 European companies. The project runs for 3 years from September 2016 to September 2019 with a total investment of 16 million Euro. BIOFOREVER 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. 720710.

Participation is free of charge. Find out more and register here: For more information about the project see

The workshop is a satellite event of the 12th International Conference on Bio-based Materials. For more information and registration:
