BIOREF-INTEG is a “Coordination and Support Action Project” within the framework of the FP7 programme (Theme Energy). The project is funded by the European Commission from June 2008 until May 2010 and is co-ordinated by the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN). It is supported by a further 12 partners from all over Europe who vary from SME’S and industrial partners, to Universities and RTD institutes.

The main aim of the project is to develop advanced biorefinery schemes to be integrated into existing industrial fuel producing complexes. Several biomass processing sectors are considered within the BIOREF-INTEG project to include: sugar/starch (bioethanol), biodiesel, pulp and paper, conventional oil refineries, power production, the food industry and the agrosector.

The identification of innovative biorefinery concepts within this project could be beneficial to the aforementioned sectors by significantly increasing the overall economic profitability, and decreasing the overall environmental impact of their conventional processes.
