Belgium, Europe, September 2016
API Europe (Athens, Greece), an affiliate of American Process (Atlanta, GA), is one of 14 partners under the BIOFOREVER PROJECT, “BIO-based products from FORestry via Economically Viable European Routes”, to receive funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program. A number of pre-treatment and subsequent conversion technologies will be demonstrated by various partners, including delivering commercialization routes for the most promising value-added products.
Theodora Retsina CEO of API Europe, commented “We are delighted to be part of BIOFOREVER consortium and to collaborate with the other members on this exciting European project. Woody biomass is an important European feedstock to fuel the bioeconomy and we look forward to evaluating the many different types of biomass included in the BIOFOREVER project. Biorefineries, as envisioned in BIOFOREVER, that produce commodity fuels and chemicals as well as high-value co-products like nanocellulose will have the most financial viability and impact.”
