WHY THE PROGRAMME »POTENTIAL OF BIOMASS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED MATERIALS AND BIO-BASED PRODUCTS«?

We are determined to acquire a comprehensive insight into »discarded potential of biomass«, to research all aspects and benefits of cascading utilisation of this locally available, natural and renewable resource, left unexploited to this day. Partners, allied through research-development-production form of circular economy, plan to develop and optimise new, sustainable processes and technologies to help us dig the way through to useful biomass components. Those can prove beneficial in various production sectors – from chemical, textile, paper, wood processing and automotive industries, construction, energy and engineering – integrated as environmentally acceptable materials and products, highly recyclable and re-usable. That way we are building new value chains, we are allowing ourselves to step firmly onto green products market and we are strengthening competitiveness of Slovenian economy, firming social partnerships and, at the same time, burden environment significantly less.
