Role of wood-based biorefining in the European bioeconomy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The role of wood-based biorefining in the European bioeconomy is briefly discussed, with some comments on the current and future trends. At the moment, the European forest industry and other relevant sectors are actively searching for new processes and products for sustainable use of forest resources. This is achieved, for example, by converting pulp mills to more advanced pulp mill biorefineries (bioproduct mills), by developing novel value-added applications to the cellulosic fibres, and by more efficient ways to re-use recovered wood and fibres.
