Project Bio4Products shows how bio-resources such as straw, bark, forest residue and sunflower husks can be the key to a more sustainable future.
Project Bio4Products shows how bio-resources such as straw, bark, forest residue and sunflower husks can be the key to a more sustainable future.

In a drive to replace fossil material in a wide variety of end products, Bio4Products is creating four bio-based products for which at least 30% of the original fossil-based stream is substituted with sustainable resources, and which deliver a 75% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Bio4Products will demonstrate the integration of these sustainable resources into four end products: roofing material, phenolic resins, sand moulding resins, and engineered wood and natural fibre reinforced products.

The EU-funded project is currently part of the platform, BioWatch – the one-stop-shop for the latest research breakthroughs, news and upcoming events in the bioeconony sector. It is showing how bio-resources such as straw, bark, forest residue and sunflower husks can hold the key to a more environmentally-friendly future for Europe’s process industry.

The bio-resources have been targeted because they are unsuitable for food production and do not stimulate indirect land use change, and there is no commercially viable technology for industry to exploit these resources. Bio4Products aims to target their long-term sustainability by carrying out in-depth assessments of each resource.

Treatment by a state-of-the-art technique called fast pyrolysis will first convert the solid biomass into a bio-oil, while largely preserving the original functionalities. The next step sees the functional groups present in the bio-oil separated by fractionation, obtaining a sugar stream and a lignin stream.

An environmental impact assessment will be carried out, and a detailed economic and market study will be conducted to develop a strong business case for the four products.
