Project aim: to build a bio-refinery
In partnership with Arbiom, the Bioskog project consists in a feasibility study to assess the relevance of a unit for producing sugars from wood. It has given rise to two new projects:
- Sylfeed: a project that brings together eight European partners with the aim of building a demonstration plant to process wood into sugars and then into protein for animal feed. This project is jointly financed by the BBI (European and public partnership) to the tune of €11 M.
- Sylchem: a project that brings together three partners. The aim of the project consists in assessing the quality of sugars and lignin (co-product) derived from the deconstruction of wood in chemical applications. €3 M of funding has been provided for this project by ADEME.
Currently, the Bioskog project is looking towards constructing a bio-refinery, particularly for the long-term production of alternative high-quality proteins intended to be used as animal feed. Trials and funding options are still under study. The construction of a demonstrator is expected to be approved by the end of 2018.
The Bioskog project is jointly financed by the European Union as part of the 2014-2020 ERDF-ESF Lorraine and Massif des Vosges programme and by the Grand Est region.
Total cost of project: €800,000
ERDF subsidy: €195,000
Grand Est region susidy: €195,000
