Sustainable raw materials obtained from thermochemical fractionation of biomass can replace toxic chemicals in manufacturing. This process converts biomass residues by fast pyrolysis into fast pyrolysis bio-oil to deliver excellent starting materials for sustainable, bio-based products. In this context, the EU-funded NewWave project will select product lines to fully exploit the unique chemical functionalities from biomass residues and organic waste streams. The concept includes wastewater treatment and water reuse.
NewWave will also introduce wood-based products for the construction industry to replace steel and concrete as structural components, modified wood to replace chemically treated wood for outdoor use, and medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and plywood for interior usage.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation program under grant agreement N° 101058369.
