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.

The BIOCORE international workshop on challenges and opportunities for lignocellulosic bio-refineries with a special focus on the social, legal, and political assessment will take place in Brussels on 5th March 2013.
The workshop will have an interactive format, which will provide participants with ample opportunities to share opinions with other experts on hot topics linked to the social, legal and policy issues that will influence the development of advanced biorefining and the expected impacts thereof of this future industrial activity.
