    Abstract

    The BioRefine- New biomass Products Programme of Tekes, Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation, for 2007-2012 aims to generate new and unique expertise in the processing of biomass and to apply it to the creation of processes, products and services related to biorefineries. A broader Finnish effort to develop new biorefining competencies and technologies is coordinated under the umbrella of the BioRefine programme. The programme harnesses an extensive network of Finnish research institutes, universities and enteprises. Activities of the programme, the main results achieved so far and examples of projects and demonstration activities on biorefineries and production and use of second-generation biofuels in Finland are presented in the paper
