Bringing Value to AgroBiomass is supported from a number of other,
mainly EU-funded, projects that focus on various aspects of a transition to a greener, bio-based economy.
The supporting projects are (in alphabetical order): BECOOL, Biogas Go Global, BIOPLAT-EU, DiBiCoo, GRACE, Go-Grass, MAGIC, MUSIC,PANACEA Network, POWER4BIO, Pro-Enrich. You can find further information on each project in the paragraphs below and in their websites.
The AgroBioHeat consortium would like to thank the respective coordinators, dissemination leaders and other consortium partners of these projects for their collaboration and support!
BECOOL is a Horizon 2020 research and innovation project to foster the cooperation between the European Union and Brazil, for the development of advanced lignocellulosic biofuels, produced from sustainable agricultural value chains.
This project has received funding from the European Union's H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 744821.
Biogas Go Global provides a platform for the accelerated growth of the biogas industry in the United States and other partner countries by establishing collaboration between industry, academia and the private sector. The goal of Biogas Go Global is to increase the biogas sector through partnerships between Danish and partner country stakeholders.
This project has received funding from The Danish Industry Foundation.
BIOPLAT-EU aims to promote the market uptake of sustainable bioenergy in Europe using marginal, underutilized, and contaminated lands for non-food biomass production through the provision of a web-based platform that serves as decision support tool.
This project has received funding from the European Union's H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 818083.
DiBiCoo is a cooperation project between biogas technology exporting and importing countries, with the overall objective to support the European biogas/biomethane industry by preparing markets for the import of sustainable biogas/biomethane technologies from Europe to developing and emerging countries.
This project has received funding from the European Union's H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 857804.
GRACE (GRowing Advanced industrial Crops on marginal lands for biorEfineries) is a 15 m€ BBI demonstration project which aims at optimizing various miscanthus and hemp value chains. The goals of the project are to produce sustainable products with a strong market potential, to guarantee a reliable and affordable supply of sustainably produced biomass, and to better link biomass producers with the processing industry. In order to avoid competition with food and feed crops, miscanthus and hemp are cultivated on areas that have been polluted for example by heavy metals, or are unattractive for food production due to lower yields.
This project has received
funding from the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) under
the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme
under grant agreement No 745012.
GO-GRASS will develop a set of small-scale bio-based solutions to unlock the overlooked potential of grassland across Europe and create new business opportunities for rural areas.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N°862674.
MAGIC aims at promoting the sustainable development of resource-efficient and economically profitable industrial crops grown on marginal lands, considering that industrial crops can provide valuable resources for
high added value products and bioenergy. To achieve the project objective, an up-to-date database of existing resource-efficient industrial crops will be developed with information on their agronomic characteristics, input requirements, yield performance and quality traits for end-use applications.
This project has received funding from the European Union's H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 727698.
It's biomass... but denser and easier to use. Intermediate Bioenergy Carriers (IBCs) are formed when biomass is processed to energetically denser, storable and transportable intermediary products analogous to coal, oil and gaseous fossil energy carriers. They can be used directly for heat or power generation or further refined to final bioenergy or bio-based products. IBCs contribute to energy security, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels in Europe.
The MUSIC project will support market uptake of three types of IBCs by developing feedstock mobilisation strategies, improved cost-effective logistics and trade centres. The investigated IBCs include pyrolysis oil, torrefied biomass and microbial oil.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 857806.
PANACEA Network aims at the dissemination of near to practice applicable cases of Non-food Crops and at the cooperation between research, industry and farming community, in order to increase the contribution of Non-food Crops to the European Bio-economy Strategy.
This project has received funding from the European Union's H2020research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 773501.
POWER4BIO aims at empowering EU regions to maximise the use of their locally available biomass feedstock. The project will support policy makers and other regional stakeholders to foster the transition to a bioeconomy era and will develop a catalogue of business model pathways to fully realise the bioeconomy potential of each region. POWER4BIO involves ten regions across the EU and one regional network, being supported by an extensive number of stakeholders.
This project has received funding from the European Union's H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 818351.
Pro-Enrich aims to develop a flexible biorefinery approach able to processing a range of agricultural residues from rapeseed meal, olives, tomatoes and citrus fruit industries. This will help fulfil the growing global demand for alternative sources of protein and phenolic product streams. Pro-Enrich takes the process of fractionising biomass to a new level, identifying proteins, polyphenols, dietary fibres and pigments for use as food ingredients, pet food, cosmetics and adhesives.
This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 792050.
