The EU project BIOCORE will conceive and analyse the industrial feasibility of a biorefinery concept that will allow the conversion of cereal by-products (straws etc), forestry residues and short rotation woody crops into a wide spectrum of products including 2nd generation biofuels, chemical intermediates, polymers and materials. Through the development of a range of polymer building blocks, BIOCORE will show how 70% of today’s polymers can be derived from biomass.

Over the last four years, Europe’s R&D effort in the advanced biorefinery sector has been spearheaded by BIOCORE, EUROBIOREF and SUPRABIO FP7 projects, which together received 50M€ of European Commission financial support and mobilized 68 European public and private partners. In early 2014, BIOCORE, EUROBIOREF and SUPRABIO will be completed and the three projects have decided to combine their efforts to offer a one-off opportunity to policymakers and industrial groups to get an early and uniquely integrated view of the outcomes and impacts of these projects.
|BIOCORE has received funding from the European Community's SeventhFramework Programme (FP7/ 2007-2013) under the grant agreement n°FP7-241566|
