Projecttitel: The development of a pentose-based biorefinery
Projectnummer: AF-14260
Kernthema: Circulair
Looptijd: 2015-2017
Budget: € 1.150.000
Projectleider: Daan van Es
Projectpartners: AVANTIUM CHEMICALS, Tereos Syral, Wageningen University & Research


DLO-FBR (Food and Biobased Research) will together with Avantium and Tereos Syral Belgium perform precompetitive research into the development of a pentose-based biorefinery system. The aim is to demonstrate at lab and semi pilot scale that pentoses like xylose and/or arabinose can be refined from agricultural side streams like wheat bran, corn stover, sugar beet pulp or bagasse. Such side streams from the agrifood industry are not suitable for human consumption and only have a very low value as feed.
