Lignocellulosic (LC) feedstock will soon become a key strategic resource in Europe for chemical intermediates and products, boosting the transition from fossil-based to bio-based economy. BIOFOREVER will demonstrate 5 new LC value chains and 3 valorisation routes for co-products utilizing 4 different cascading biorefinery concepts in order to establish optimal combinations of feedstock, biorefinery, end-products and markets that will allow the successful implementation of these value chains in commercial scale as follow-up step. Chemicals, food and specialties will be produced. The project will target spruce, poplar and wood waste but will also assess other LC feedstocks in order to achieve the most commercially viable and sustainable value chains. Using a fast-track (3-year) and open innovation approach, BIOFOREVER teams up 14 leading industrial partners in feedstock supply, pre-treatment, downstream processing and producers of chemicals, food and specialties in order to rapidly progress commercialization of these value chains. Assessment of feedstock sustainability, customer perception and stakeholder engagement for scale up to commercial scale will be integrated in the project. Business cases for the value chains will result in competitive biobased products, matching cost of existing fossil-based products (e.g. at par with current sugars) and improving performance in properties and sustainability. Other impacts of BIOFOREVER are: - Up to 85% reductions in CO2-emissions compared to fossil-based value chains. - About 400 mln turnover in biorefinery intermediates (lignins and sugars) and 650 mln in chemical intermediates and products for a 1,5 mln ton/year LC biorefinery. - The number of direct jobs of commercial scale biorefinery would accumulate to about 1200, generating typically 6000-7500 indirect jobs and an additional investment exceeding the 70M euros by the partners

« UMTRI: average new vehicle fuel economy in US in August down from July | Main | Fujitsu develops low power consumption technology for 5G » BIOFOREVER (BIO-based products from FORestry via Economically Viable European Routes)—a consortium of 14 European companies—has started a demonstration project for the conversion of woody biomass to value-adding chemical building blocks such as butanol, ethanol, and 2,5–furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) on an industrial scale. The demonstration project will run for 3 years. The overall budget is €16.2 million (US$18 million) with a €9.9-million (US$11-million) contribution from BBI JU. Woody biomass, including waste wood, will be converted to lignin, (nano-) cellulose and (hemi-) cellulosic sugars, and further converted to lignin derivatives and chemicals. Feedstocks will be benchmarked with crop residues and energy crops. A number of pre-treatment and subsequent conversion technologies will be demonstrated, including delivering commercialization routes for the most promising value chains. Typically, such bio-refineries will be projected in logistic hubs such as the Port of Rotterdam and other European ports. In December 2015 the consortium applied for European funding under the Horizon 2020 program and in April 2016 the proposal was positively evaluated by Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU), a public/private partnership between the European Union and the Bio-based Industries Consortium. BIOFOREVER consortium partners include: API Europe, Greece; Avantium Chemicals BV, Netherlands; Bioprocess Pilot Facility BV, Netherlands; Borregaard AS, Norway; Bio Refinery Development BV, Netherlands; DSM, Netherlands; Elkem Carbon AS, Norway; Green Biologics Ltd, UK; MetGen Oy, Finland; Nova Institute, Germany; Novasep Process SAS, France; Phytowelt, Green Technologies GmbH, Germany; Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands; and SUEZ Groupe, France.

An integrated experimental and modeling approach for the design of sequential multi-column chromatography (SMCC) is presented to maximize productivity in bioprocessing. The approach consists of three steps: (1) single-column model development and validation, (2) multi-column model development and validation, and (3) productivity optimization. The integrated use of process experimentation and modeling enables sufficient process understanding to be gained during process development such that the optimal SMCC design is found even with limited time and materials. The application of the approach is demonstrated by determining the optimal SMCC design that maximizes the capture of human IgG by a silica-based protein A adsorbent named AbSolute. For this example, the optimum productivity was found to increase from 2.9 kg L-1 day-1 for batch operation to 4.0 kg L-1 day-1 for SMCC operation with three columns. A second case study considering a hypothetical adsorbent of larger particle size and slower mass transfer is also presented, to further demonstrate the applicability of the integrated approach. The case studies clearly illustrate the capabilities of the integrated approach in quickly determining the optimal design and operation for an SMCC arrangement and with minimal, carefully targeted, experimentation. © 2013 The Institution of Chemical Engineers.

An integrated experimental and modeling approach for the design of high productivity protein A chromatography is presented to maximize productivity in bioproduct manufacture. The approach consists of four steps: (1) small-scale experimentation, (2) model parameter estimation, (3) productivity optimization and (4) model validation with process verification. The integrated use of process experimentation and modeling enables fewer experiments to be performed, and thus minimizes the time and materials required in order to gain process understanding, which is of key importance during process development. The application of the approach is demonstrated for the capture of antibody by a novel silica-based high performance protein A adsorbent named AbSolute. In the example, a series of pulse injections and breakthrough experiments were performed to develop a lumped parameter model, which was then used to find the best design that optimizes the productivity of a batch protein A chromatographic process for human IgG capture. An optimum productivity of 2.9kgL -1day -1 for a column of 5mm diameter and 8.5cm length was predicted, and subsequently verified experimentally, completing the whole process design approach in only 75 person-hours (or approximately 2 weeks). © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
