Contribute to a low carbon and/or zero carbon economy for Portugal - Horizon 2030, generating new value chains, creating skilled employment and boosting the national bio-economy.
BIOMASS, A RENEWABLE RESOURCE.
- Carry out multidisciplinary research, development and innovation actions necessary to change the paradigm of the fossil-based economy, design and implement biorefineries oriented to the sustainable use of biomass.
- To contribute to a low carbon and/or zero carbon economy for Portugal - Horizon 2030, generating new value chains, creating qualified employment and boosting the national bio-economy.
Portugal lags considerably behind other EU countries in this area, without any significant public and private investment in sustainable uses of biomass for new value chains, e.g. biomethane, biohydrogen, advanced biofuels (e.g. cellulosic ethanol, diesel substitutes) or bio-based products that replace others currently obtained from fossil resources.
