Area 3.3: BIOREFINERY
Topic 3.3.1: Sustainable Biorefineries
 Targeted at the funding of a limited
number, large, multi-disciplinary,
Collaborative Projects
 Scope includes:

at pilot scale in an integrated approach
 demonstrate the part of the biorefinery complex that is closer to
the market at industrial pilot plant scale
 assess for the entire value chain the environmental, economic
and social sustainability including food competition, impact on
water use and biodiversity, land use, soil carbon stock balance
and fertility, greenhouse gases balance, toxicological risks,
energy efficiency
