Discarded potentials of biomass
Program Programme Programme »Potential of biomass for development of advanced materials and bio-based products«
Strategic direction of the programme is to exploit the potential of biomass for development of advanced materials and bio-based products, by creating new value chains for cascading utilisation of biomass. The programme is placed within priority area S4 (Slovenia’s Smart Specialisation Strategy) - The natural and traditional resources for the future, Networks for the transition to the circular economy, and is co-financed by EU Structural Funds in Slovenia. It comprises all of the identified focus areas and technologies: technologies for development of new bio -based materials, technologies for utilisation of secondary raw materials, and technologies for reuse of waste and production of energy from alternative sources.
Product directions follow ambitious goals of CEL.CYCLE Consortium to develop an array of competitive bio-based products, thus answering to demands for more efficient utilisation of raw materials and reduction of environmental burdens. With synergies arising from cross-sector partnership, which represent comprehensive value chain for material and energy utilisation of biomass, the programme contributes to long-term competitiveness of an important part of Slovenian industry: chemical, textile, paper, wood processing and automotive industry, construction, engineering and energy.
Programme is a cooperation platform for top research teams mastering materials, chemical engineering, manufacturing and processing technologies, biotechnologies and nanotechnologies. Collaborating within new value chains helps us move beyond fragmentation and strengthens our capabilities to achieve international Excellency in research and technological development.
