It has been quite a year. You, we and most people have been feeling it.

At Bio4Energy, the management troika that took office early 2020 have been soldiering on to convince our partner universities and influential people in the bio-based sector, gathered as the Bio4Energy Advisory Board, that the research environment deserves to keep delivering world-class research and development on biorefinery from wood or organic waste beyond 2022. Next year is the last of Bio4Energy’s second five-year programme period funded by the Swedish government.

Luckily, the 200 and some Bio4Energy scientists and their advanced students have kept delivering results, some of which are featured in our last Newsletter of the year, Biofuel for Shipping, Aviation & Road Transport.

Moreover, Bio4Energy has added a Research Coordinator, This email address is being protected from spambots.

So, from all of us, to all of you;

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Thank you for you loyalty. We hope for your continued support in 2022.
