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 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
