Bio4Energy Feedstock

feedstock_600Forest growth has been seen as a northern resource as it is plentiful in several Scandinavian countries. On the Bio4Energy platform for feedstock research, scientists attempt to understand what trees are made of and, where appropriate, to modify their characteristics so that trees can be designed for use for a specific purpose, such as for making biofuels, "green" chemicals or bio-based materials. Photo used with permission.The research in Bio4Energy Feedstock aims at:
  • Increasing the quantity and quality of plant biomass sourced from forests and;
  • Developing efficient processes for conversion of biomass to valuable products and energy.

Both researchers are affiliated with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and carry out much of their work at the Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC). 

Said Niittylä of the platform Bio4Energy Feedstock: "The overarching goal of the feedstock platform is to increase biomass accumulation per hectare and make the biomass better suited for biorefinery processing. The Bio4Energy Feedstock platform investigates the molecular controls of quantity and quality of wood, the environmental and management practices that govern these, develops analytical tools for wood characterisation and carries out field trials with transgenic trees. We can provide expertise in cellular and organismal growth control, biomass allocation to harvestable parts of the trees, characterisation of wood and fiber properties, quantitative tree genetics and establishment of tree plantations".

On the platform for Bio4Energy Biopolymers and Biochemical Conversion Technologies scientists develop new biocatalysts and bio-based processes designed for efficient conversion of lignocellulose into commodities such as advanced biofuels, "green" chemicals and bio-based materials. Since 1 January 2016, platform researchers also:

  • Use tree cell-wall polymers as a raw material for producing electrictiy, heat, biofuel and value-added 'co-products' using biorefinery methods and;
  • Create and develop biocomposites using nanotechnology.

Bio4Energy System Analysis and Bioeconomy

Systems analysis IMG for website
The Bio4Energy platform for System Analysis and Bioeconomy conducts research in the following areas of activity:

  • Use of process integration methods to optimise plant energy and material flows;

 

  • Techno-economic assessments;

 

  • Application of life-cycle analysis (LCA) for environmental assessments;

 

  • Policy design and implementation, regulatory issues, market dynamics, and innovation diffusion and adaptation, as well as;

 

  • Spatial modeling of cost-effective production plant localisations. (This implies efforts to minimise the cost of the entire system being studied, taking into account costs and revenues for feedstock outtake, terminal handling and transportation, production plants, transportation and delivery of final products, sales of co-products, and economic policy instruments.)

Bio4Energy Environment and Nutrient Recycling

environmental_600Scientists on the platform Bio4Energy Environment and Nutrient Recycling perform research with the aim to render waste products or surplus energy from biorefinery useful for other processes, or to check the efficiency and sustainability of products or processes over their life cycle. Photo published with permission.Researchers on the platform Bio4Energy Environment and Nutrient Recycling have set out to provide the checks and balances in the work of the overall research programme to create environmentally-sound and sustainable biorefinery processes. These should be made to operate efficiently and turn out energy-efficient products, as well as cause or produce no or only a minimum of environmental pollutants and undesirable by-products or waste.

General objectives are:

• To contribute to the development of environmentally-sound and sustainable forest-based biochemical and thermochemical industrial processes;

• That the ecological footprint in terms of emissions of substances that are hazardous to soil, water and atmosphere should be minimised and;

• That complete biomass use loops should be created.

Specific goals include:

• The recovery and purification of nutrients from waste streams. Deeper understanding of the impact of recycling various nutrient/ash mineral assemblies on soil chemistry and plant availability;
• The generation of value-added products from waste streams: Adaptation of an algae satellite loop to a pulp-and-paper process environment;
• Understanding the role of particulate matter from flue gas for the formation of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in thermal conversion processes;
• The minimisation of gaseous and particulate inorganic and organic hazardous emissions from thermal conversion processes and;
• The revision of existing and future biochemical and thermochemical conversion processes to identify potential environmentally harmful impacts and incomplete use loops.
