Biorefining highlights 2016



Last year, the blog issued for the first time a post summarizing the main highlights in the biorefining sector during 2015. I would like to make it tradition, so here you can find “Biorefinig highlights 2016” condensing some of the main facts and announcements about biorefining facilities of this year that comes to its end.

I take this opportunity to wish all the readers a merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017. The audience of the blog continuous to grow. Thank you for following it! Next year, the blog will keep on tracking biorefining sector and innovations in the green chemical engineering field. By the way, starting January 2017, the blog will be offering advertising services. If you are interested, you can contact me via biorefineriesblog@gmail.com.
