How can raw material from the forest be part of the
transition towards renewable fuels and new products?
The project Forest Refine started 2012 and ended 2014. It was the fourth cross border project between partners in Sweden and Finland. The borders crossed are between the two countries and the research disciplines; Forestry and Chemistry.
The overall objective was to acquire knowledge of ways to optimize biomass supplies for refineries in the Botnia-Atlantica Region from existing, planned or potential procurements areas. All the results are compiled into a final paper, ”Synthesis report: Forest Refine, 2012-2014”. The project has been unique in its aim and scope, and the results presented plays an important role for developing the coming biobased markets in the BA region.
