Welcome to the BIOREFINE portal, home to the BIOREFINE project and the BIOREFINE CLUSTER EUROPE
The Biorefine project aims to provide innovative strategies for the recycling of inorganic chemicals from agro- and bio-industry waste streams. It wants to maximally close nutrient cycles by minimizing residue flows and economically valorizing the minerals that can be recovered from these residue flows. In this way, the Biorefine project targets to reduce environmental pollution and the wasting of finite resources and thus to stimulate a sustainable and more bio-based economic growth. Eventually this should create a win-win situation for both the environment and the economy in the NWE region.
The Biorefine Cluster Europe aims to cluster currently running projects around nutrient and energy cycling. In this way it wants to put NWE on the map as competence region in the domains involved, to improve project management and interaction between participating projects, to enhance the impact of projects on stakeholder groups and to indentify research needs and develop new projects.
