BIOFIT Online Seminar on Retrofitting approaches in the field of Lignocellulosic Ethanol

In 2018, 5.4 million m³ bioethanol were produced in Europe, most of this from sugar or starch containing crops (e.g. sugar beet, grain, and wheat). However, uncertainties regarding the interactions of first-generation biofuel production with the food production and land availability are widely discussed. A supplement and prospectively a replacement of conventional biofuels by second-generation (2G) biofuels is thus politically strongly desired. Add-on solutions of lingocellulosic ethanol technologies for first-generation bioethanol plants offer the potential to overcome uncertain economic viability of stand-alone, greenfield 2G ethanol plants. This will be addressed by this virtual seminar.

The virtual seminar will be held on 25th November 2020, 15:00 – 16:30 CET.

The seminar is associated to the latest WG2 online meeting on “Lignocellulosic Ethanol” that took place on 11 November.
