2G BIOPIC proposes a new approach: bioethanol production from lignocellulosic biomass. This technology is based on a highly effective clean deconstruction of lignocellulosic biomass, an advanced organosolv technology, for which several patents have been submitted in the past decade by CIMV. An original and efficient biomass refining technology allows optimal extraction of the three main biomass components and downstream biotechnological transformation.
The RenewPACK project will demonstrate the material Skalax as a barrier in food packaging for the first time ever. RenewPACK is a project partly financed by the European Commission through LIFE+. The project is conducted by Xylophane AB (as coordinating beneficiary) and Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (as associated beneficiary).
The main goal of the project is to facilitate the transition of the Flemish industry to a sustainable, biobased economy by building a competitive biocluster of companies that are able to build new value chains.
The project is primarily aimed at companies from the agro-industry, technology developers and the chemical sector.
