New concepts for decentralised bio-refinery

Millions of tons of agricultural residues are released that are currently not being exploited in a good way. By giving more attention to supply chain management and to the establishment a regional facility for biorefinery, the residues can be processed into semi-finished products that can be used in multiple applications.

In 2011, a concept for a raw material bank for agricultural residues was already worked out. The goal of this project is to elaborate the concept into a business model for a concrete situation. This will be done in cooperation with a waste processing company and will contribute to the professionalization of supply chain management.
