Feedstock Enhancement and Biorefinery Interface

Agricultural Biorefinery Innovation Network for Green Energy, Fuels & Chemicals

Funded through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC)
Agricultural Bioproducts Innovation Program (ABIP)

THEME 1 - Feedstock Enhancement and Biorefinery Interface

Reduce handling, storage and processing costs, and to ensure a steady supply of lignocellulose feedstock required for biorefineries, by:

1) improving genetic attributes of cereal crops leading to better adaptation of genotypes for dual grain and biomass production in Canada;

2) developing efficacy of densification technologies for new or improved cereal varieties for emerging bioproducts;

3) interfacing between biomass production and biomass conversion platforms within ABIN by integrating feedstock supply and conversion models;

4) studying the environmental impacts on these technologies and feedstock base.
