This month about 45 Bio4Energy scientists and student researchers met at Skellefteå, Sweden, to hear about newly granted, multiannual, beyond state-of-the art projects designed to:

- Grow trees whose wood more easily renders its cellulose, in view of making biofuel or other bio-based products;
- Extract specialty chemicals from bark from connifers;
- Design biochars for specific uses, for instance as absorbent of toxic substances from waste water and to;
- Examine the gas phase of thermal conversion of biomass to ascertain whether phosphorous may be captured and reused.

Moreover, Bio4Energy system analysis researchers described their new webinar series through which people interested in research on biorefinery and bioenergy from all over the world can interact with experts on system analysis who have used tools such as life-cycle assessment and cost-benefit analysis to check the feasibility of implementing various bio-based technologies.


Bio4Energy is proud of its young researchers! About 20 of them met in a separate session at the event, 15-16 May, under the guidance of This email address is being protected from spambots.

There they laid down their view on what further training initiatives could be added to current ones in the Bio4Energy Graduate School.

Greatest thanks to all those who contributed to this event!
