About SMIBIO

The main aim of the SMIBIO Project is to study the technical-economic and environmental viability of small-scale integrated biorefinery units capable of processing different kinds of biomass produced in short radius catchments rural and small urban areas, both in Europe and in CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States).

The project has the following specific objectives:

  1. Simulation of two different biorefinery platforms under a wide range of dry and wet feedstocks:
    • LCB (Lignocellulosic Biorefinery)
    • ADB (Anaerobic Digestion Biorefinery)
  2. Analysis of the synergies of combining both platforms
  3. Identification of feedstock mixes with sustainable and reliable supply conditions for the evaluation and selection of business cases in Europe and CELAC

 

The SMIBIO consortium includes five European and six Latin American partners and is coordinated by the Laboratorio Nacional de Energia e Geologia (LNEG), Portugal. The project runs from November 2015 to October 2018 and has the Reference ELAC2014/BEE-0249.
