The AFORE project (Added-value from polymers and chemicals by new integrated separation, fractionation and upgrading technologies) is a large EU project developing new technologies for the separation, fractionation and primary upgrading of wood-based polymers and valuable low molecular weight compounds to be used by the wood processing mills of today and the future wood biorefineries. AFORE is a four-year project started in 2009 having a budget of EUR 10.9 million and a consortium consisting of 19 participants from 10 countries. The partners, located across Europe and US, will bring together their expertise to tackle the important challenge of transferring forest industry into an efficient lignocellulosic biorefinery, in which the unique chemical composition of all wood fractions is fully exploited.
