​The agriculture sector needs to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change while contributing to improved food and energy security. Green biorefineries - producing high-quality protein, bioenergy, and other biobased products from grass-clover biomass - receive increasing interest as an option that can deliver towards all these objectives.

Green Biorefineries for protein - bioenergy and biomaterials

Chalmers University of Technology welcomes you to a seminar, Thursday, 8 September, 10am-12pm. This seminar will present results from the Interreg-project Green Valleys. In the project Danish and Swedish partners have developed new technology and system concepts for green biorefineries.
The seminar involves researchers and representatives from the EU commission, Danish Ministry of Environment, and the Swedish Energy Agency.
The seminar ends with a discussion of policy actions for accelerated implementation of biorefinery systems in Denmark and Sweden.

Register to the seminar (last day to registe:r 2 September)

Place: Teknikparkens Konferenscentrum. Chalmers teknikpark, Sven Hultins gata 9, 412 58, Göteborg. The seminar will also be streamed on Zoom and YouTube. Coffee and tea from 9:30 am.

The agriculture sector needs to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change while contributing to improved food and energy security. Green biorefineries - producing high-quality protein, bioenergy, and other biobased products from grass-clover biomass - receive increasing interest as an option that can deliver towards all these objectives.


As grass-clover cultivation
 in areas dominated by annual crops often results in carbon sequestration into soils, the climate benefits from substituting fossil fuels, soy-based feed and other GHG-intensive products are further enhanced. In addition, the grass-clover cultivation results in important co-benefits, such as reduced need for pesticides and fertilizers and improved biodiversity in agriculture.
