IProPBio - Integrated Process and Product design for Sustainable Biorefineries


The overall goal of IProPBio is to exchange complementary theoretical and experimental knowledge of research Staff while looking for innovative answers to such important questions. IProPBio is divided in 4 research-oriented work packages plus two supporting packages for internal knowledge sharing and results dissemination. Alternative feedstock and high-value products characterization; thermodynamic data analysis and properties prediction; alternative technological flowsheets for economic and eco-compatible conversion of waste biomass into high-value products; mass and energy integration studies to reduce wastes and enhance the profitability; life cycle assessment to determine the net contribution of the best designs to environmental pollution are the main issues approached in the work packages.

Circular economy, Eco-innovative materials, Energy, Energy Efficiency, Engineering, Environment, Low carbon Energy, Processes and Systems Modelling, Resources and Raw Materials, Resources efficiency
