FRACTION roundtables

FRACTION roundtables

The aim of the project is to develop a catalytic pathway to valorize biomasses from forests and agriculture to produce compounds that can be used for construction materials, paper and cardboard, and fine chemicals including food ingredients. The purpose of the Roundtable is to encourage discussions and knowledge sharing about bioeconomy, connecting research with industry, promote innovation, and discuss pathways for enabling bioeconomy with a focus on each organizing country. The outcomes of the discussions will support the exploitation work of FRACTION project and strengthen the network among stakeholders in the European bioeconomy. The Roundtable features short keynote presentations, each followed by a Q&A session to encourage an active discussion.

The next planned roundtable meeting is focusing on Opportunities of forest-based biorefineries. The event will be on 24th Oct 2022. The organizing partners are IFAU and CLIC.
