Biorefining Monthly Update – 2017/09



Bioeconomy is a megatrend. Several news on biorefining are popping up all over the world every week. Many interesting announcements and innovations cannot be covered by my Blog posts. In the light of this, I have decided to start a new monthly/fortnightly service including short pieces of news and brief outlines focused on biorefineries and innovations in green chemical engineering. The possibilities of the Blogspot platform are limited but I will try to draw maximum benefit from them. Let us begin with the first issue.


Promote your company or event through the BioRefineries Blog.

Södra will invest more than SEK 100 million (approximately 10,4 M€) in the production of biomethanol from forest raw material. The project will commence in autumn 2017 and is scheduled to be ready for operation by spring 2019.
