Biolyfe: Industrial Demonstration of 2G Bioethanol Production in Italy

D. Chiaramonti, A. Giovannini, A. Frattini & S. Ferrero
The EU BIOLYFE project aims at demonstrating the whole lignocellulosic ethanol chain at industrial scale: within BIOLYFE a demo industrial-scale second generation bioethanol production plant has been built, with a design output of approx.40,000 tons ethanol per year. Further than BIOLYFE, which investigates hydrolysis and fermentation and is supported by the EC FP7 Programme (DG Energy), the research activities on the pretreatment phase are developed with the support of the Italian National Programme "Industria 2015"...
