BioBuF:s biorefinery concept at the Science Festival

At the International Science Festival in Gothenburg (Vetenskapsfestivalen), the BioBuF project held a session focused on biorefineries and the research done within the project.

The products we use in our everyday life, such as fuels, chemicals and materials, are made from a variety of raw materials, but in many cases they are made from the refining of oil or other non-renewable, fossil, resources. However, if these non-renewable resources could be replaced by biological resources in the production of a product, for instance bio-plastics, the product’s environmental impact could hopefully be reduced.
