  • From November 21st, Europe runs on bioenergy alone

    Etiketter: Woodfuels
    Renewables are expected to provide Europe with 66 days’ worth of renewable energy in 2017, with as much as 41 days provided by bioenergy alone. Bioenergy has reached an all-time high in Europe – which is great news in light of the alarming announcements made by scientists on climate change at COP23. Because of this, a new information campaign, the ‘Bioenergy Day’, aims at raising awareness on bioenergy’s pivotal role in the renewable energy transition. / Svebio

  • Better use of entire biomass of willow

    Etiketter: Woodfuels
    VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Aalto University investigated how willow biomass can be utilised more efficiently. When processed correctly, willow is eminently suitable as a source of sugar in the production of ethanol. The lignin fraction formed as a by-product of the ethanol process and the fibres and compounds of willow bark are suitable for the manufacture of environmentally friendly chemicals and bio-based materials. / VTT
