Efficient utilisation of marine biomass
|Coordinator||C-Green Technology AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 30 000|
|Project duration||January 2017 - May 2017|
|Venture||BIO Innovation - strategiska projekt|
|Call||Pre-studies to develop new "Innovation Projects" within BioInnovation|
Purpose and goal
Possible options to use HTC (Hydrothermal carbonisation) technology to upgrade marine biomass has been investigated and a concept sketch of a marine biorefinery has been developed. We have identified suitable work packages for a first phase of a bioinnovation project. Possible actors from the hole value chain has been identified and contacts have been taken to several of these.
Expected results and effects
In this project a cost and energy efficient marine biorefinery concept has been identified with a potential to extract the energy in farmed marine biomass and waste streams from fish farms and simultaneously produce high value products.
Planned approach and implementation
The work core of this pre-study project has been a series of workshops. Both with the representatives from the project partners as well as with representatives from other bio-innovation projects. Contacts has been taken with potential partners for a bio innovation project. A marine bio-refinery concept has been created and work packages for a first phase of a bio-innovation project has been identified
