TitleCOST Action 1306. Valorisation of lignocellulosic biomass side streams for sustainable production of chemicals, materials & fuels using low environmental impact technologies (LIGNOVAL)
CreatorCOST Action 1306
DescriptionLignocellulosic residues are a promising (and currently largely under-utilised) feedstock with a significant potential to be converted into useful end products. However, a joint multidisciplinary effort from several disciplines including (bio)chemistry, biology, (bio)chemical and biological engineering, forest products sciences as well as environmental sciences and experts in economic assessment in liaison with industry is required to appropriately address the efficient transformation of such residues. The main objective of COST Action 1306 is to develop a European multidisciplinary network able to provide a range of innovative solutions for the valorisation of lignocellulosic residues to chemicals, fuels and materials making use of environmentally sound protocols including pretreatment/fractionation and conversion to valuable end products. This COST Action will bridge gaps between academic disciplines as well as between academia and industry by bringing together skills and expertise that cross scientific borders interconnecting different technology hubs across Europe, overcoming technological barriers, going beyond current lignocellulosic waste exploitation/management approaches. The COST Action started in 2014 and will continue until 2018.
