Efficient utilisation of marine biomass

Reference number
Coordinator C-Green Technology AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 30 000
Project duration January 2017 - May 2017
Status Completed

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 effects and result

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

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
