New directions for advanced biorefineries tipped: report


In Denmark, researchers from BCBT group at The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability – Technical University of Denmark have discussed and presented the most recent innovations and strategic orientations for the development of advanced biorefineries. The review study was recently published in the journal Bioresource Technology.

Focus of the study was given on the valorization of non-carbohydrate components of biomass (protein, acetic acid and lignin), on-site and tailor-made production of enzymes, big data analytics, and interdisciplinary efforts.

Giuliano Dragone, Abraham Kerssemakers, Jasper Driessen, Celina Yamakawa, Larissa Brumano and Solange Mussatto are the authors of this study.
