Waste and Residuals Re-valued

Biorefineries can be designed and built to produce desired outputs from the processing of a wide variety of biological materials.

There is an opportunity for industry, academia and governments to collaborate on a technology roadmap that develops the concept of an integrated, stand-alone forest biorefinery.

I completely agree: Waste, residuals, materials that didn't have an economic value before are now re-evaluated.

These biorefineries will adopt and integrate a range of materials handling and preprocessing equipment,

  1. thermochemical and biochemical conversion technologies, and
  2. new extraction and purification sciences,
  3. to produce a range of intermediate products,
  4. while using less energy and reducing effluents and emissions.
