1-3D-1 Negative GHG emissions and longtime sequestration (C fixation) through development of new C-based products (KB-34-012-001)

Project: EZproject

Project Details

Description

Biobased products can contribute to reducing climate change. This potentially could be achieved either through long-term storage of carbon in these biobased products and / or through substitution of other products with high greenhouse gas emissions. The net carbon balance of these production systems, however, needs to be determined. There are many ideas for replacing materials, chemicals and energy sources with biobased alternatives, but there is a lack of understanding of the potential scale of application and long-term effects and consequences are unknown. Three different cases at European level are studied: 

 

  1. Wood-based products using forest biomass
  2. Products based on (ligno-) cellulose from perennial crops
  3. Products made from marine biomass (shellfish)
